A child’s room needs to have a study table, but the direction in which you place it matters a lot in deciding whether your child can concentrate on his/her studies or not. Make sure that the study table should be placed in such a way that the child’s face is towards East, North, or North-east direction. Keeping the study table there helps children gain new ideas and also boosts memory and concentration skills. Make sure you keep the books towards the south or south-west direction to avoid distraction.
