The rate an infant changes into an adolescent is a rapid one. Children physically change at fast pace. At the same time their brain development and social skills mature. It seems easy to recognize when it’s time to teach a child to crawl, walk or ride a bike but how do we know when to teach social interaction and help their brain growth? More importantly then when, is how?
Stimulating a child’s creativity has become one of the most effective ways to enhance brain growth. Whether you’re teaching him/her to color or introducing him/her to music, the benefits can be tremendous. According to an article from pbs , learning music facilitates learning other subjects and enhances skills that children inevitably use in other areas including language development and problem solving skills. Aside from the mental advantages, music also helps with social skills as well as confidence building, improved memory and teaching discipline according to SheKnows .
Aside from all the development benefits, music’s greatest advantage can be teaching children to express themselves. Whether you plan on teaching them and instrument or having them sing, music in children’s life has numerous benefits that will stay with them as they continue to learn and grow.
