As children grow up they grow more and more active. They try new things, they break things and they make messes. As almost every family who has ever raised children knows, living in an apartment with growing children can be quite a hassle. Texas apartments are no exception, and the enclosed spaces make for a very accident prone area. Here are some practical tips on how you can change things just a bit in order to make your life a whole lot easier.
Rentals in Texas will sometimes come with furniture and the landlord may not like it if your children damage his tables. Many children are prone to using markers and other writing equipment on their tabletops. The best way out of this is to just replace the table top in your children’s room and get a whiteboard placed as a table top. This will allow your children to be as creative as they want to be and, on the other hand, you can just wash away their mess with a simple shrug of a duster.
Another thing which causes headaches in many households is the bicycle. Many children leave them in the hallway, and they are very easy to fall over on and they take up a lot of space in the hallway. An easy remedy is to buy bicycle hooks. These are heavy duty steel hooks which you can install on your wall and then simply hang the bike from the hooks. This will free up the space in the hallway; the children will not fall over the bike every time they run through, and the bike will not fall over by itself and the entire space will look more organized.
Another important change that you should make in Grand Prairie Texas apartments is that you should buy stackable chairs when your kids are growing up. This has many, many benefits. It allows your children to move freely about the house, it allows more of their friends to come over and play and it allows you, as parents, to be confident that your children are not going to run into chairs and injure themselves.
One of the most important things that you should change in apartments in Texas while raising children is the storage. Storage without children is easy, as you can store cleaning supplies and other toxic products on ground level. However, with young inquisitive children this should be changed quickly. All cleaning supplies and other toxic supplies should be stored above the reach of the child. An easy way for this is to employ discarded cardboard containers and mason jars. Attach the jars to high places on the inside of a high closet with wire and hooks and then just pop bottles of cleaning fluid, etc. in the jar. This way, the products are in easy reach for you and out of reach of the children without you having to spend any money on a remodel.
