Did you know that in the olden times, particularly the Roman age and the medieval era, people thought of children as miniature adults? Because of this belief, children were not given any special treatment. They worked along adults doing all sorts of stuff that were beyond their capacity. They were treated unfairly.

But times have changed. Now, people know better. YOU know better. Thanks to the likes of Sigmund Freud and Alfred Bandura, you now recognize that children have their own unique needs, that they must be given special treatment. This new civilization has done its part to see to it that children are well protected (think UN Conventions on the Rights of Children).

Childhood is a vital stage for development. Whatever it is that a person experiences in his childhood has a lot of say in what he is to become when he reaches mature age. As a parent, it is your responsibility to see to it that your child gets optimal development, that he gets the best of experiences as a child.

This given, you must create a nurturing environment for your child. You must design an atmosphere that paves the way for healthy exploration and learning. Give him space to play, to discover. Provide him with toys that will help develop all of his senses. Allow him to be mobile so that he develops his motor skills. Give him educational toys that will help develop his mental skills and creativity. Be meticulous with every detail. Yeah, your child definitely deserves to have one of those educational rugs.
