GROWTH – it’s the work of childhood and if you think about it, it’s really the work of life. As parents, we are constantly growing and stretching and learning. We think we have this parenting thing down and then the baby gives up a nap, the toddler decides that biting is acceptable behavior, a preschooer develops separation anxiety, and a school-age child has friend issues. Ack! If we have the attitude that learning is a life-long endeavor then those moments become catalysts for our own growth rather than time for a good cry. Well, maybe we’ll have an itty bitty cry BEFORE we grow.
We are all about FAMILY growth at Kindermusik and we have oodles of resources to help you continue that growth at home. Our Kindermusik Online Parent Guides are chock full of parenting tips, child development information, and delightful activities to help both you and your child GROW through these priceless early years. We share them because we are all for anything that helps make good parenting even better – easier is nice, too.
We’ve always known that music is a great tool for GROWTH and research continues to prove that it is so.
“Music reaches parts of the brain that other things can’t. It’s a strong cognitive stimulus that grows the brain in a way that nothing else does, and the evidence that musical training enhances things like working memory and language is very robust.” Read more about that here
