Your house isn’t just a place to sleep, eat, and store your stuff. It’s your home – a place where your family gathers, shares in each other’s lives, and makes memories. Homes are special. It’s the reason why people spend their time and money decorating, remodeling, and trying to make their home comfortable and pleasing.
Parents want to make their homes comfortable and safe places for children. Much time and effort are spent creating the kind of environment in which your babies, toddlers, children, and teenagers will be comfortable and thrive.
And, just as parents want the best for their children’s education and their school environment as well, the home is just as essential to your child’s well-being and educational growth. Children that are distracted by an unhealthy environment cannot put their focus on learning and education.
Providing your children with a comfortable home gives them the ability to focus on their homework and learning new skills. What does a comfortable home entail you make ask?
A comfortable home means proper bedding for a good night’s sleep, a pantry, and refrigerator stocked with nutritious food, clean water, a safe area to play, proper lighting for reading and doing homework, and a comfortable temperature in your home.
Studies Show How Environment Impacts Learning
Children need to learn, play, get plenty of sleep, and eat well-balanced meals. They also need a comfortable home environment with proper temperature and humidity. Recent studies have shown that air temperature directly impacts a child’s ability to focus and learn. While these studies have been used as a call to action for proper heating and cooling in schools, the same could be said for your own home. When a child is focused on being too hot or too cold, then they are unable to focus on their studies and unable to learn. Just as test scores decrease at schools when the temperatures are too hot and humid, your child’s ability to concentrate on his or her homework will also decrease because the body is focused on combating the cold or heat.
