  1. Amazing stuff. I can totally relate. For a child his or her bedroom is practically the only place where they can exert control – I know it was the first place I learned that I could dictate my own surroundings. Tiny as it was my bedroom was my mine and mine alone. I’m sure many children don’t even enjoy even this simple pleasure – having to share with many siblings, but children are incredibly resilient and whether or not they enjoy a bedroom allto themselves they will find some spot to call their own no matter where or in what situation they are born into.
    Perhaps a follow up would be along the lines of the ‘special places’ children make for themselves… the children that through circumstances cannot even imagine a whole room to themselves.
    Excellent blog.
