One song is worth far more than 1,000 lectures, for children and adults alike.
Think about it for a minute – what runs through your head, the songs you heard as a kid or the lectures from your parents.
Chances are if you remember the lectures, it isn’t in a positive light.
Music is a universal language, crossing cultural and age gaps, going straight to the heart.
Chances are, the vast majority of words harped at you by parents, teachers and well-meaning others throughout your school years hold a collective portion of your memory resembling an annoying blah-blah-blah, and not much more.
Music can be blended in to so many situations, from the morning wake-up routine to down time after school, to carpool time and all the way through to bed time.
