wee sing note purpleParent Tip: Creating a mood through music Song: Creating a mood through music
• From a very young age, children respond to music. Watch their reactions as they respond to different musical styles.
• When you want to create a quiet, relaxed mood just before nap or bed time, put on a lullaby CD/cassette or other easy listening music.
• Expose your child to a variety of musical styles by turning on the radio and dancing or moving to the music on a particular station. Every few minutes, change the station and move to that music.
