Tips for parents
Whatever style or theme for your roomthe child you did not choose, no matter how you designed the interior, follow two important rules. First, the children's room should be environmentally friendly and safe, so give preference to natural finishing materials, avoid heavy or unstable furniture, try not to conduct open electrical wiring and put children's electrical outlets. And the boy's room should be easy to clean. If for a very young inhabitant this is not relevant, then teenagers have to cope with cleaning their room very quickly. If the child is cluttered, then even the greatest akuratist can not maintain order in it. And try not to violate the territorial possessions of its inhabitant once again. Even small men consider their territory inviolable, and the rules acting on it are inviolable. Make up the design of the future room together: it's very important for your boy to take part in planning and decorating your room. For a boy it is generally important not only to have his own opinion, but consider this opinion authoritative. And who, if not parents, can teach him not only the expression of his point of view, but also the ability to defend it, in short, be a real man. We advise you to read:
