Changing the look of your kid's living space can be a good thing for their psyche, and even better, for your relationship with them. Read about some home decor tips for your teen and think about whether or not this type of change would be a good thing for your teen. This also is a perfect activity for you and teen to work on together. Working with your children on a task like this may be a good opportunity to talk about drug abuse or anything else that might be on their minds. It will be an informal setting and one that may be more comfortable than a traditional sit-down type of conversation. Completing a job like redecorating can show your child that you're willing to give them their space, but still want to be involved. Not to mention it could turn out looking wonderful and is a ton of fun!
