Recent studies from professional organizations* have proven beyond a doubt what we have long suspected: every child wants to become a professional house painter! Says one expert: “Though many children divert their deepest longings and end up as doctors, lawyers, astronauts, presidents or garbagemen, only professional painters find true, lasting fulfillment in their work.**” Sociologists and child psychologists are still seeking the cultural forces and evolutionary explanations that could bring some light to this discovery. But we here at ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING think we know why!
Why Every Kid Wants to Be A Professional House Painter
1. You get to climb tall ladders! How many times to kids hear the words “Get down from there!” or “No, you can’t climb that!”? As soon as they can crawl, kids are making a beeline for the steps, the chairs, the bookshelves… Anything that seems to provide the opportunity to fall and break their heads. Once you are a professional house painter, you are not only allowed to climb tall ladders – you are expected and required to!
2. You get to color on the walls! Every parent knows that, given the opportunity, children will color on the walls. Even if you ban crayons (the worst offender) and hide away the markers (even washable ones), kids will color with spaghetti sauce, or mud, or pancake syrup. Professional painters get to harness this innate desire that we all have, and spend their days blissfully applying colors to walls, ceilings, doors… And they get paid for it!
3. You get to wear a cool uniform! Kids are always dressing up. They love putting on a costume or a uniform… Just look around as Halloween approaches if you don’t believe me. Well, professional house painters get to dress up every day, going out in public in clean, fresh uniforms, playing the part of the artisans they truly are.
4. You get to use cool tools and machines! What child isn’t fascinated by scissor lifts and air compressors? Professional painters are constantly using advanced machinery to perform their complex, detail-oriented tasks.
If your child seems to show signs of wanting to be a professional painter, here are a few tips for you:
> Provide a chalkboard wall in the home, where they can put their creativity to use without damaging the other walls.
> Spend time outside at the playground with your children, allowing them to climb in a safe and interactive environment.
> Hire ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING to paint your home, bringing new color and freshness to your life, and giving the little ones a role model and inspiration, directing the course of their young lives!
