Make it believable. Turnrepparttar 142955 hall or main area into gotham city. Put a table inrepparttar 142956 center ofrepparttar 142957 room and a large box guarded by 2 grown ups dressed in uniform. Arm them with water pistols.

Now get a grown up, preferablyrepparttar 142958 birthday child's father, to dress as Batman in a Batman costume. Get another grown up, or a few grown ups to dress asrepparttar 142959 Batman villians. Set uprepparttar 142960 bat signal inrepparttar 142961 center ofrepparttar 142962 room.

Turn one ofrepparttar 142963 rooms intorepparttar 142964 Batcave, make it look likerepparttar 142965 batcave inrepparttar 142966 Batman movies. Closerepparttar 142967 door of that room, do not allow guests access to that room untilrepparttar 142968 time is right.

Discover Your Housing Value System

Written by Lois A. Vitt

Are you stuck trying to make a housing decision? Small wonder. Your housing decisions are about everything in your life, and they involve your inner motivations and desires as well as finances, design and logistics.

Consider this. Our relationship with our home isrepparttar most personal nonhuman relationship we may ever have. Home is something we “provide” for ourselves and our loved ones. It offers control over our physical setting and our leisure. It provides security and independence. Inrepparttar 142927 best-case scenario, home is our sanctuary. The psychology of housing decision-making is rooted in our housing past. That history starts with childhood dreams of a safe, secure, happy home, dreams that persist long into adulthood. Identifying childhood relationships to home will help give you insight into your current feelings, and even what may be holding you hostage about your decision. The goal, however, is a home that fully reflects your adult values rather than needs mired in your childhood.

In addition, everyone has a “housing profile.” Discover yours and you are on your way to making a smart decision, whether that decision involves buying, selling, remodeling or investing in another home.

Your unique housing profile consists of four areas:

* Personal factors that deal with your identity, desire for autonomy, need for personal safety, security, and other aspects ofrepparttar 142928 “real you.” * Social factors that refer to your concerns about others: your partner, family members, friends, neighbors, andrepparttar 142929 people in your community. * Tangible factors includerepparttar 142930 physical comforts that are important to you about where you live. The home itself and its surroundings, convenience, commuting time to your job or business, schools and other aspects of your home's location. * Money factors are what you think or believe about your financial affairs: how you handle money, savings and investments. It really isn't about how much you have.
