Unfortunately, sometimes we as parents are a little controlling because we obviously think we know what is best for our child, and usually we do. We love to “snow plough” the way clear for them to give them the easiest life path, to “learn from our mistakes”, to give them what “we didn’t have” yadda, yadda, yadda. We all know the righteous mantras we tell ourselves as parents and I’m sure we mean well but sometimes we have to let go. Our children are not mini replicas of us as much as we want them to be because we are awesome. They have unique thoughts and perspectives that have to be cultivated; we have to let them make their own choices and mistakes.

 

When it come to their room decor it’s only paint and as your child grows their needs and interests change; so should their surroundings to help support those desires. Let them be proud of what makes them different or special instead of trying to conform to what is deemed the norm. Ultimately as parents, we are to nurture our children to be the best they can be and that means creating the optimal environment for your uniquely gifted child.
We volunteer with various children’s charities to help make a child’s dream space come to life. We love doing this and witnessing the child’s spirit just light up when they are in their glory. It makes us as parents realize we shouldn’t wait to let circumstances force us to do what makes our children happy, confident and inspired.
