Uncertain times in education can be stressful on both students and parents. A brand- new study space at home will help boost learning and help build confidence for the new school year, no matter the size of the space. Together parents and students can create optimal learning spaces that inspire creativity and fun.
Parenting and education expert Dr. Karen Aronian, Ed.D. says this starts with creating the proper environment. “Homes are designed for adults,” she says. “So, consider what amount of space you are offering to your child and their interests. A place for everything and everything in its place. Empower your child by giving him/her a say.” To provide the best possible study experience for children, it is important to shift from cluttered areas to personalized and purposeful study place design.
Through her company, Aronian Education Design LLC, Dr. Aronian brings over 30 years of expertise guiding parents and educators in reorganizing their learning spaces.
