Things Children's Playroom Doesn't Need
Look around. Don't you find your children's room has lots of things it doesn't need? Most parents agree that there is an over-abundance of services and goods available for kids that are not necessary. Parents all over the world spend adult prices for toys and clothes for their kids. There are so many choices in kids' goods that lots of companies turned to private on-line sales offering hundreds of different styles of products.
Older parents remember simpler times, when their kids were happy playing in a sandbox without tons of needless toys. So, what are 10 things children's playroom doesn't need?
Let's start from toddlers. Do you think they really need early reading kits? May be its better to save $15 and do not put pressure on your babies to be the first to read? Even some toy sellers think there is no value in those DVDs.
And what about rubber bands made in shape of dinosaurs, sharks and cars? For sure, the children's playroom doesn't need luxurious and expensive furniture. These are parents who want the children's playroom to look prestigious.
In fact, children's playroom should be safe and functional. It should have nothing extra.
Kids like to watch cartoons and it would be great to have a TV set in the playroom. Though, on the other hand they can watch cartoons in the living room.
In such a way parents will be able to see how long their kids are watching TV. Even if there is TV in the children's room, it does not need 3D movies. Most kids feel uncomfortable wearing special glasses.
The same can be said about computers. Modern kids spend too much time in front of computers. They prefer to communicate in the virtual world instead of real. Instead of playing hide-and-seek or other action games, they shoot and fight in virtual games.
And what about things that 'prematurely sexualize kids?' They are as harmful as shoes with high heels, pedicures and manicures for little girls.
We do not say the children's playroom doesn't need a dollhouse or a railway station. But is it worth to pay $900 for them? These are just toys! Kids will break them as any toy.
