"A child is a curly dimpled lunatic". - Ralph Waldo Emerson Does your child run here and there, climb shelves and derive devilish joy from breaking things? If yes, then there is nothing much you can do about it for they are just being themselves. Children are typically mischievous and a majority of parents have a tough time handling them. However, surveys show that of all the crazy things that children do there is one thing that exasperates parents the most. It is the fact that kids often neglect their rooms which can make parents go ballistic. They resort to fights and even bribes to get their kids to straighten up and get their acts together. In many cases, the parents give up and clean the room themselves, much to their annoyance. If getting your child to clean his/her room gets you to your wits' end, here is what you can do. To discourage such behavior, psychologists suggest that children can be taught to respect their surroundings if they take part in designing their rooms, and if possible, your home. One interesting way is to make use of wallpapers to alter the feel of your child's room.
Now-a-days children can create their own wallpaper for their rooms. Allowing a child to decorate his/her room with a wallpaper of his/her choice increases the sense of ownership. This will also teach him/her to be responsible for the choices he/she makes. Kids can choose from a wide variety of wallpaper themes and styles. You can find new ideas and concepts for kid mural wallpapers at your local wallpaper store. Using cutouts, wall appliqués, and posters of your child's heroes or favorite sports stars, you can create an interesting wall mural in your child's room. For the finishing touches, you can use unique borders that enhance the appeal of the wallpaper.
Creating their own wallpapers, allows children to give expression to their artistic urges and also to show to the world things or people they love the most. Your child considers the room as a safe haven where s/he finds a comfort zone. Therefore, allowing him/her the freedom to decorate the walls of his/her room can psychologically have a tremendously positive impact. You can take the help of wallpaper books. This will help your child get better and greater ideas on themes available. Some books cater especially to girls and include ideas such as dollhouses, floral and fairy wallpapers among many others.
