Kid’s Bedroom: How It Can Affect Your Child
We often think of a kid’s room as a playful representation of their interests. Perhaps with a cool bed, and awash with their favorite colors and toys. But there’s some evidence that the look and layout of your child’s bedroom can have a bigger effect on them than we realized. In this article, we’ll briefly discuss how your kid’s bedroom can have lasting effects on them.
The Dangers of TV
As the public wises up to the dangers of technology exposure, the idea of a TV in a child’s bedroom is souring quickly. As a study in Developmental Psychology noted, children who had access to media in their rooms were at a higher risk of poor grades, aggression, video game addiction, and poorer health overall. It’s easy to see the correlation—more screen time means less time in productive activities, like reading, playing sports, or sleeping. So it’s probably best to keep the T.V out of their room until they are older.
Colors Affect Mood
There’s a large body of research concerning how color affects mood, and this research has been extended to kids as well. Of course, colors affect children differently, but certain generalizations can be made about how they’ll affect the majority of children.
Red, is linked with energy but also aggression, and shouldn’t be used too much. Orange inspires confidence and extroversion, while blue is usually a soothing, relaxing color for kids. The Complete Book of Color by Suzy Chiazzari is a great resource to search color effects.
