My mom used to get so mad at my brother for using tacks on his walls to stick up posters of girls and rock bands. I don’t think she cared so much about the content. She just didn’t want things stuck to her walls. Oh how she worried about her walls.
His favorite was of course the Farrah Fawcett poster in her red bathing suit. It was posted right over his desk. (He gave her a black eye with a pen one time when he was mad.)
My mom gave him so much heck about posting things on his wall that I don’t remember ever putting anything up. It wasn’t worth being yelled at.
I wondered with the advent of the stretchy-tacky putty (kind of of like gum that can be pulled off easily) if parents even care anymore about posters and stuff being stuck to walls?
I love it when my kids decorate their rooms. I love to see what they feel expresses their personalities. My 10-year-old is all about Taylor Swift and the 8-year-old loves Angry Birds and Skylanders. The 4-year-old wants a calendar to post and a poster. She’s mad she doesn’t have posters like her brother and sister.
Maybe I will mind when the boy tries to stick up hot girls. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Do you mind when your kids/teens decorate their walls? Do you have to sign off on the content or you don’t mind? Do you care about tack holes? Do you favor the new sticky putty?
What do you remember having up in your room?
