Parenting And Art

ParentCircle

From drawing on the walls of caves to drawing in a computer, art has been a part of human life since prehistoric life. We use art to convey our thoughts and feelings, and ideas. Although we use art like a language, art still has an upper hand as it can be understood even by those who speak a different language.

You can also use art to create a very strong bond with your children. Research shows that listening to music with your child helps to synchronise your thoughts and create a much deeper bond. It also helps in have more positive conversations. You can also use dance to connect with your child. For example, rocking your baby soothes her. Similarly, dancing with your little one can help relive stress, help her gain better control over her movements. With so many benefits to be derived from art, wouldn't you want to use it to make your parenting skills more effective.
