    Grammar question 2 Please help

    Give your little ones the room of their dreams. After all, they need space to enjoy their freedom, to explore the different ideas of fun, play and learning.

    Do I need article before 'space'?
    It should be fun, play and learn...or even learning is correct?

    Thanks

    It wouldn't be incorrect to add "the" before "space" but it would slightly change the meaning.

    They need space = simple statement of fact, suggesting that they need some space to enjoy their freedom etc.
    They need the space = They need the right amount of space, a specific amount of space or the particular amount of space being referred to, in order to enjoy their freedom etc.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please give your threads more relevant titles.

    'Give your little ones the room of their dreams' would have been good for this.
