Calming Your Children--the Power of Music

You can visit Seven Clown Circus today and read my post titled Calming Your Children--the Power of Music:

"I walk in the door after a long day of running errands with my cranky and tired kids. I drop the groceries on the counter and sigh as I think of the things I need to do before I can put these tired kids to bed...

Studies at
Columbia University shows that surgeons who use music during operations, on average, were “mellower and better performers in the operating room.”...

So, what type of music will help calm your child?..."

Great article.

My older son just switched from Sax to guitar. I don't care what he plays, but I want him to have music in his life forever and love it as much as I do.

I believe wholeheartedly in the power of music, ESPECIALLY for children. In fact, I work at a company that manufactures play areas for kids. The reason I bring this up is because McDonald's has begun installing our Musical PlayPlaces in stores around the country, which I find very exciting for the future of music eduation for children.

Read about one in Oswego, NY at www.experienceplaytime.com/Oswego-NY-McDonalds-re-opens-Musical-PlayPlace!

Great post!

I read your article on the link you shared on this post and the article is awesome. Thank you for introducing music as a way to calm children.:-) Added to that, I love the list of your choices of music for calming. Thanks.

First of all, thank you.
Thank you for investing in parents by blogging about your experiences on Munchkins And Music, and sharing your faith openly.

Please know how incredible this is. And be encouraged to keep going.

I hope and pray that even more Christian parents (as well as non-Christian parents looking for answers) will find your blog and will be inspired by your experiences, solutions and struggles.

We recognize that these are incredible times to live in, where technology allows parents around the world to encourage each other. As for ourselves, we use technology to reach out to children globally.

We’re developing the world’s first videogame that takes kids through the Bible from beginning to end. Our hope is to increase the love for God’s Word amongst kids.

We dream to see fathers and sons going through the Bible together, having fun as they become part of David’s army, spend time in the fish as Jonah, and play level after level, leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection.

Our prayer is that after kids finish the game, they will have an awe of God, and a deep love of the Bible; eager to read it for themselves. We believe that kids can read the Bible, no matter their age (as long as the translation fits their reading level, of course :D ).

In order to steward this immense project well, we’re building relationships with parents like you. We like to ask your input by allowing you to look behind the scenes, have your kids play demo game levels before they go public, etc. You may also recommend a few people you think would be of interest.

Additionally, we can provide you with plenty of interesting “blog-food” (concept art, images, etc) if you feel that this could benefit your subscribers.

If you’d like more information, shoot me a quick reply to the email address below.
