Learn Songs

Tips to Enrich Your Child's Life!

Learn songs along with your kids and sing out loud with them for the sheer pleasure of it. That's Tip No. 5 for you. This is not to be confused with learning music as in a musical instrument. You've probably noticed how uninhibited kids are at singing when they are really young. Some carry on, but others begin to get very self-conscious to the point that they stop entirely. This can be for any number of reasons;

  • Loss of front teeth
  • Extremely shy nature 
  • Sarcasm, real or imagined
  • Lack of encouragement

May be it is the loss of teeth when their speech is often characterised by lisping which causes a huge amount of attention to be focussed on them whenever they open their mouths. Forget singing, some kids even try to talk as little as possible to avoid the loud exclamations of cho chweet this invites.

Learning Music

Learn One Musical Instrument

Learning a musical instrument is a decision often left to the child to stumble upon or a school music program to enforce at random. So, here's Tip No. 4. Encourage your child to learn to play at least one musical instrument. Introduce your child to music as early as you possibly can, yes, that's right, think womb, may be even conception. Point is, the earlier the better

Kids and Arts

Kids and art is my tip No. 1 and yes, I intend to begin with what is perhaps the simplest of them all. Crafts and arts for children normally bring to mind a box of gaily coloured crayons and a dozen colouring books. Okay, that's as good a place as any to start I guess, but surely you can do better as your child gets bored with that same old same old.

Kids craft and art really means much more than a box of crayola. My idea is to bring out the kernel of tremendous potential in the forgotten things that used to be part of growing up not so long ago. Crafts and art for children have come a long way and there's something to suit kids of even the weirdest temperaments.
