We “Pakistani’s belong to the type of society where nurturing (moral and emotional) has always been the top priority of parents. Building a kid’s character with these codes of nurturing has been the key for success. Our sensitivity varies from people to people but increases in the case of something extra sensitive. Yes, babies get all the love and care not because their age demands so, but our sensitivity attached to them.
All our lives, women are told fancy stuff about their prince charming, marriage, having kids one day and they wait for the god’s honor to have children and bring them up. When the time comes to have our babies, we tend to develop more affection, care and sensitivity for them. Somehow, that makes us more conscious about what to choose best for them. Maybe because the more sensitive we are, the more we care and that make us cautious. These cautions lead us to confusion!
The first thing that gets them confused after pregnancy is how to design their baby’s room. Color is one of the most noticeable qualities of the world around us. For babies and small children, understanding color is an essential building block they will use for learning in all aspects of their life. Not only does color play a vital role in the overall aesthetic of a space, it also impacts baby’s mood, emotional wellbeing, productivity, learning and behavior.
