A child who starts walking – should have his own 2.5 meter space
As soon as the child starts walking, then the child should have its own “minimum” living space of at least 2.5 meters – according to pedagogues and psychologists. A child who is denied such living space will not show too much independence and a sense of organization

  1. Many parents and guardians do not have the option of a separate children’s room. Nevertheless, the living space of 2.5 meters, the so-called “children’s corner”, is then quite enough for the child to grow and develop without hindrance.
  2. The children’s area should be in any room except the kitchen (for evaporation during cooking) or if the kitchen is enclosed by glass from the children’s corner. The glass part should not be covered with curtains so that adults can always see the child.
  3. From early childhood, children should be taught to sit properly at the table without crossing their legs and to control their own movements.
  4. The child should not keep more than 2 to 3 objects on the table (in front of the child) at the same time, because this is how the child learns to play and to be an orderly child.
  5. Playing on the floor can have more freedom for the child – while the child (independently or with other children) is playing on the floor – then there should be enough space and a little more freedom. Two children should have 1.35×1.75 cm of space to play undisturbed. Otherwise, the child’s movements will be restricted and it is possible that he will knock down all the objects around him (which adults may want to preserve).
  6. Dimensions 50×90 (but not smaller) are great for a children’s desk. Such a table will be useful during a long series of years (of schooling). For growing children, it is best to get a chair whose legs can be adjusted (if the legs of the table are fixed and without the possibility of adjustment-lengthening or shortening).
  7. The distance between the table and the wall is important – the distance between the table and the wall should be about 110 cm so that the child does not feel cramped. This is enough so that the back of the chair does not point to the wall even if the child gets up from the table.
  8. Pillows under the back is not desirable – this popular way of holding pillows for adults is not desirable for children. Thus, the child will have an upright posture in which the spine also grows and develops properly.
  9. Closed shelves for children’s things – closed shelves are always practical (especially children’s books will be protected from dust), whether the furniture is bought in a store or ordered according to carpentry designs. This protects children’s lungs and prevents various infections.
  10. The child needs to write, draw and study but is hungry and has no appetite – it is advisable to give a child who has no appetite fresh orange juice (before breakfast). Oranges and lemons are rich in vitamin C and are an excellent appetite stimulant.
