Make It Fun
So you're decorating your child's room. You may be surprised how much your young child's ideas about decorating her room may clash drastically with yours. You may envision something floral or sports-themed, and your daughter may want a Dora the Explorer room (complete with Dora and Boots comforter and curtains). Or your son may choose a blue and green Buzz Lightyear-themed room. If you let your children go with their own ideas, you will be allowing them to assert their independence and uniqueness, but you will also most likely be redecorating within a year or two when they decide they no longer want rooms full of Dora or Buzz.
How to come to an agreement where everyone is happy with your child's room? A child's room is his haven, the only real place in the home he truly owns (or thinks he owns!). There are ways to negotiate and turn a ho-hum room into a room where you'll be just as happy as your child with the choices your child has made. You' can work together and agree on what will be done.
