Long live lullabies!
Lullabies aren't just for babies; children of all ages can benefit from soothing music.
At what age does a child outgrow lullabies? The answer: never! Children of all ages as well as adults can benefit from soothing music. Every culture has lullabies and quiet time music created to soothe and relax.
Lullabies are a great way to transition from an activity to quiet time, to play when the noise level in your home or car gets too loud or as a way for the whole family to relax together.
Turn on a lullaby or quiet time recording to settle children down before dinner or to calm children during a long car ride or while sitting in traffic. Just watch the noise and anxiety level go down.
Tips to create relaxing music time
- Hold or hug your child while singing or humming along
- Use these recordings as a cue to wind down at rest time and bedtime
- Use selections of your favorite classical recordings or lullabies that celebrate your cultural heritage
