"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

Home Challenge:  Look for opportunities for you preschooler to be a little helper at home.  With help and encouragement they can accomplish a lot.  They can help you in the kitchen, they can help feed pets, dust, set the table, and help with younger siblings.   Be sure to give lots of praise for their small efforts.  The more they feel valued the more they will want to continue helping you.  This will be very rewarding for you as well!
