Choose the essentials
There are few musts when setting up a desk for a child aged 11 and over – a sturdy work surface, a lamp so eyes don’t get tired from reading plus somewhere comfortable to sit. Choose a chair with adjustable height that fits in under the desk so it can be pushed away when not in use.
Keep it neat
It’s hard for anyone to concentrate when things get messy, but if their workstation looks cool, your child will want to keep it tidy. Desktop organisers and a tray are a good idea, which make it easy for your child to keep things neat.
