Singing To Your Child...Even When You Sound Like a Strangled Otter!

Think you can't carry a tune in a bucket? (Or...sound like a strangled otter when you attempt to sing "Skip To My Lou"?)

Guess what?

Kids don't know, care, or mind.

If you are self-conscious about the quality of your voice, remind yourself that the very act of singing is what matters most, both to children's brain development but also their emotional connection to the adults who sing to them.

Babies and children are keyed into YOU and your loving attention when you sing to them, not whether you can consistently hit that C note.

Music is inherently joyful. Sharing music with children is not only joyful, but it communicates that adults care about kids... PLUS it supports literacy learning by building the foundation to hear sounds in words for later reading success.
