Communication Board – Talking can be intimidating. Using a communication board or a worry board, for children in crisis can keep a line of communication open without them needing to talk. This does not have to be a public board. A small dry erase board in the child’s bedroom works well. I like to have it close to their bed, so they can easily jot down what they are thinking about while going to sleep.
Furniture should be as versatile as possible – some beds can be used for a wider range of ages than others so consider that when making a purchase. You should be prepared for the possibility of things getting broken too. So, while you won’t want the room to look cheap you may want to fit it with good quality second hand furniture that can be replaced. Empty frames give children the option of putting out their own photos or pictures and a nightlight can also be a useful addition. Don’t forget to take into consideration safety – if you’re planning to care for young children you’ll need to fit items like cord tidies for blinds to help prevent any accidents.
