Get To Know Your Child’s Musical Palette

With the onset of iPhones and musical streaming services, much of your children’s music may be invisible to you. Without effort, you may never actually hear it. Encourage them to plug into the car system – making it easier to initiate a discussion.

Ask them to tell you why that music is great. Why do kids like it?

Have fun with what you understand – and don’t understand – in the lyrics.

Enjoy it – and remember that each generation wants to change the rules – and be a bit out of reach. So – seeming a bit confused can be a really good thing.

Consider – BRIEFLY – relating it to a song or sentiment from when you were their age. Talk BRIEFLY about the difference.
