Kids love listening to music and experts say it might even help their cognitive development. Now there’s evidence that it may make little ones healthier as well!
According to music therapists, certain tones, rhythms, and vibrations can help treat various medical and behavioral problems. Songs with soothing melody and steady rhythm can also calm a colicky or teething baby.
For kids who have trouble following directions, try turning directions into rhythmic, catchy and sing-songy tunes. Rhythm is perceived differently by the brain, so kids are more attentive when you say things musically.
