Q: My little guy, age 3 1/2, LOVES pink! We got him pink shoes, pink plates and utensils, pink monsters, etc. all by request. He uses pink construction paper and pens when he's doing art. He's even asked for pink clothes (although it's hard to find boy clothes with pink on them):Now he's noticed that his friend has a pink wall and wants to know why he can't have one too. So far I've put him off by explaining that we're renters and can't just paint the wall pink. So my question is: How do we add pink to a boy's room (especially so his dad is still OK with it)? I'm stumped!

Editor: JJ, Check out Waldorf classrooms for inspiration! They're often painted a faint pink. And here's one non-painting idea that's also from a Waldorf classroom. Other ideas? Leave your suggestions for JJ in the comments - thanks!
