Sing with your kids!

Sing Together

Children love to sing and hear their parents sing. You may not have the best singing voice, but that's ok. Kids just love to hear you sing because you are important to them. Kids learn so much from singing including rhyming, how words are broken into syllables, rhythm in the language and new vocabulary.  You will see your baby watch you intently as you sing. As your child gets older, they may do movements from the song and then they will begin to sing with you. It is an amazing bit of development that we often don't notice. So, sing along with the radio, make up songs together and sing songs from your childhood. It is all an amazing bonding experience for you and your child.
