Why It Is Good To Sing To Your Child

ParentCircle

Singing enhances the child-parent bond. Several studies have established that, while children love talking with their parents, they like it even more when parents sing to them. 

Every time you sing to your child, you would not have missed noticing that her attention is focused on you and your voice. So, by singing to your child, you also help her develop the ability to fix her attention and focus. 

Experts believe that singing can be a great teaching tool too. It can be used as a fun way of teaching subjects in which the child is struggling to do well.

Singing also helps soothe a child. When you sing to your child, you make him feel that you are close to him and paying attention to him as well. This, in turn, makes him feel safe and secure, which is important to keep him calm and happy.

Listening to the song you sing also introduces your child to new words, melodies and sound patterns. It also boosts her listening and comprehension skills. These skills help build the necessary foundation for learning how to read.
