Decorating the Children’s Room Together!
The most important part of redesigning the new bedroom is to include the child.

Never let your children know that you know what they were doing minutes ago,
because it is important for them to know that they have privacy.

If that is the case, then you can rule out that there is a problem with the environment itself; Accepting that our children will ever leave home may be a process that begins earlier for some parents.
The important thing is that both have fun decorating the room; That your child at some point in his teenage or adult stage takes a drawing they did many years ago with you and treasure forever.
