Having kids is one of the great challenges of life. One of the problems, many believe, is that by the time we finally have kids, we have also forgotten what it’s like to be one. There are some things that just never seem to change. While it may feel as if they will never grow up the problem in reality is more one of patience on the side of the parents. And since research keeps on being published suggesting the longer they remain kids – the better for all of us, we can just as well let them be.
If enough sleep is good for adults then it is even more so for kids. It seems we are a single pillowslip thickness away from having irrefutable proof that the bedroom can be the main factor in turning your kid into a responsible CEO rather than being a serial killer. Starting at a very young age kids have a rather good idea of what they like. The theme and the style of their bedroom is seldom an exception to this rule. Here are some ideas on how to stimulate our kids and assist in their development rather than having a fit because the bed is never made up.
Assisting in growing up in a functional way
A child’s imagination is the breeding ground for creative development. Whatever the child sees before going to sleep and first after waking up cannot but help to have a big influence on the child’s development. Since a kid spends such a large amount of time in or on the bed it also makes sense that the bedding in a kid’s room should be very functional. Cotton is therefore the superb choice as it is completely machine washable.
When the style is never cramped
The wide range of colours, patterns and styles available for kids’ bedding is staggering. They are guaranteed to keep even those with the shortest span of attention completely engrossed. They range from ballerinas to astronauts, from racing car drivers to cowboys. And I still haven’t mentioned activities such as sailing or geometric designs like blocks.
Typical contents of a set
Most of the time bedding sets for the child’s room will have pillow cases, sheets and of course those awesome duvet covers. They are all designed to match each other and since they are made for kids they consist of high quality materials all round. A high thread count normally specified and you can expect the colours to be fast.
Some of the sets on offer provide for personalisation which allows you to specify monograms that can be added to the bedding. The monogramming can range from the initials of the child to having the full name place on the bedding. It is difficult to come up with something that emphasises the parents’ consideration and care than this. What not try it and see if the child’s spelling also improves.
The gift that gets used every day
When your child’s birthday roles around bedding is a gift that will be treasured and remembered even once they are adults. This does not mean they are only suitable as a gift to your own children. The grandchildren, nephew and nieces will all be just as impressed and the joyous memory of the room in which they grew up will in all probability last forever.
Where can you find the perfect set of kids bedding?
The best thing of these kinds of bedding is that they are so easy to get hold of. All one has to do is to go online, browse through what is available and then order it. While you are at it you might just as well involve the child in the selection and let them also have a say in which bedding they like. They just love the excitement of looking at the beautiful images on the supplier’s website display and for many of the kids this is a bigger happening than writing a letter to Santa.
With so many benefits to bringing up a child in such a meaningful way together with the ease of ordering bedding, it is no wonder that many parents, uncles, aunts and godparents end up giving multiple sets to the same child!
