My 9 year old grandchild has had his desk and chair replaced with a backless tall stool and a unit which has a flat top and shelves which are full from top to bottom. Therefore he cannot sit at a desk so is not comfortable at all and is unable to concentrate. This was only noticed Friday evening. What on earth can be done please?

Is it a standing desk?

A standing desk wouldn't/shouldn't have full shelves underneath it.

It sounds like there's no space for his legs? That would be really uncomfortable.

Hmm that doesn't sound good. Where's he supposed to put his feet And stools are uncomfortable after a while

I've seen versions with shelves for books and pencil cases etc but there would normally be space for feet
