It’s a good idea to give your child their own desk, so they can have their own space to create and do schoolwork. Kids don’t have a whole lot of spaces that feel like their own, and it can help foster a sense of personal responsibility in your child to have a desk. Doing homework or crafts on the kitchen table, for example, can be distracting—or difficult for a parent who needs to use that space for meals.
Kids desk can take up a good amount of room, though, so you should consider getting your child a desk with a hutch. The hutch only takes up space vertically, so your child can use it to store their folders, notebooks, books and knick-knacks. It’ll prevent the desk from becoming a place for your kid to plop down a random assortment of junk. You can even teach them how to keep it organized.
