For many parents, convincing their children to sleep in their separate bedroom can be difficult. It is hard to resist the child’s pleas of being afraid of the dark and lonely. However, the sooner your child gets used to sleep in a separate room, the better for both you and him or her.
It would be helpful to involve the child in decisions about decorating his or her room, so that sleeping in it would be more appealing. A bedroom theme can be the starting point of your decision for buying or decorating the children’s room.
Your little girl would probably love to sleep in a golden coach shape bed where she could feel like a princess.
Your boy would have pleasant dreams while sleeping in a bed resembling a model race car or a private boat. While taking a decision regarding a fantasy theme for the room can be fun, you will also have to think of how quickly your children might outgrow the fantasy bed stage and be prepared for the expenses required for redecorating the room.
You might blend fantasy with practical solutions that would also keep your children safe while sleeping. You should create a safe and pleasant environment so that your children will be pleased to spend time in this room the bed being the center of their world.
That’s why it is best to choose softer materials for your children’s furniture since sharp edges can be the cause of accidents.
One of the most important things to consider related to your children’s beds is the amount of light they are exposed to while sleeping. A night light, a computer or a TV can affect the child’s sleep as during the sleep the hormone melatonin is produced.
This hormone which regulates sleep but also the mood is produced in the right quantity only if the body is not exposed to light. A source of light during the night might be the cause of various sleep disorders or moodiness even if your child seems to get enough sleep.
A child spends a lot of time in his bed, so one of the most important decisions to take is to choose the right one. Besides the children’s beds, other pieces of furniture can add to the appeal of the room.
Again it is useful to think of both practical things like storage space and funky pieces that will put a smile on your children’s faces.
