Sing With Your Child Month – March 2023

Sing with Your Child Month is celebrated in March every year. This month aims at addressing the importance of singing, especially singing with children. Singing with one’s children promotes happiness, confidence, and stronger relationships. The most obvious step toward oral language development is singing. At their most basic level, songs are simply words set to music. The truth is that you share language every time you sing to children. Singing helps show your child another way that words can be precious.

History of Sing With Your Child Month

Sing With Your Child Month doesn’t have to be the only occasion to sing and dance with your children. You can sing and dance with them every day of the year. However, this month encourages people to make music in the family together with their children.

Parents want to do everything possible to help their children grow into loving, confident, and respectful adults. When people sing and make music as a family, children gain a whole new way to communicate and form everlasting, joyful memories. In addition, actively making music nurtures your child’s creativity, self-expression, and confidence and supports their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. One does not require special skills or ‘musical talent’ to achieve that — just a love of music, a desire to have fun, and, of course, a good sense of humor!

The impact of singing and making music with your child is overwhelmingly positive and the rewards of this simple act will help us make the world a much better place. Singing to children has numerous benefits. In fact, the way we learn music is quite similar to how we learn a language when we think about it. We similarly progress from notes to tonal patterns to songs with music, just like we go from phonics to words to sentences. So, sing a song, grab an instrument, and join us in celebrating Sing With Your Child Month this March.
