For some people, Labour Day weekend is a very anxious time. Summer ends, back to regimentation, limited freedom. But in my experience, there is no more anxious person than that child entering GRADE 9. HIGH SCHOOL! The end of an era, the beginning of another.
This changeover from grade school to the "cold, impersonal" (that's what they have been told) high school can be a great time to do a bedroom makeover for your children. Whether they are boys or girls, the graduation into the grown up world of high school signifies a time in life that usually means they will take on a more mature lifestyle. After all, they are going from being top dogs to puppies. Maybe the mermaid decor or the Sesame Street images on the wall should be replaced.
After all, you DO want them to act like young adults, don't you?
Here are some great decorating ideas specifically for teenagers. Check them out, if nothing else it will give you some inspiration. And hey, if you're doing a couple of bedrooms, maybe it is a good time to do that living room makeover. Just sayin'
