Murphy Bed to the Rescue
Children of divorce can find their worlds feeling topsy-turvy when one familiar home suddenly gives way to two unfamiliar places. One thing that can help to ease this adjustment is to give your child a feeling of control over something. Even when space is at a premium you can help your child create a special place of his or her own.
The Murphy bed shown here is designed to be open when a child is visiting. Adorned with pillows in a favorite color scheme, nana’s blanket, and a child’s baseball trophies, toys, and family photos, the bed creates a cozy and familiar nest. Helping your child create a personal safe haven may provide some equilibrium when the rest of the world seems to have turned upside down.
