Every week, the interns
(and mentors) get assigned some homework. Part of our homework this week was to read this article about Where Children Sleep
. It was a very shocking and eye-opening article. There are two major things I got out of this article: how important a bedroom is for a kid, and how fortunate I actually am to have a bedroom. A bedroom is extremely influential in a child’s life. The objects within the room reflect the kid and vice versa. It is very likely that by simply exposing someone to a different type of bedroom from birth, you could change who they become completely. Just to show how that might work, take into consideration that we use 60% of our brain while we are sleeping. Then think about how much of a sense of protection a bedroom gives. Put these two facts together and see how not having a proper bedroom can torment a person deeply.
