For a child's development there are many factors that play an important role. Other factors that play a role in child development include social, emotional, and physical factors. If the child grows up in a negative environment, one that doesn't provide emotional support and growth or one that hinders physical health, chances are it will negatively affect child development.

From birth to adolescence a child is influenced by their surroundings. If a child grows up in a home that is well off, they may not appreciate the hard work that goes into earning a dollar because everything was given to them. On the other hand, if a child grows up in poverty, he or she may never want things that have no significance on their life. Child's growth...

A vigilant parent would do well to monitor a child who experiences persistent stuttering in order to assess the child's situation. An option according to Helene Goldnadel that responsible parents should strongly consider is speech therapy for children if the child is above five years of age and still experiences persistent stuttering.

Even though it is not considered a core discipline in any medical practice, speech therapy for children is actually an especially beneficial area of treatment for improving the speech patterns of a stuttering child.

The aim of speech therapy is to treat and cure a stutter. The discipline falls under the broad umbrella of speech pathology. However, speech therapy is not merely aimed at teaching a child to...

What do you think of when you hear the term "music lessons for children?" If you are like most people, you think of violin lessons, voice lessons, or guitar lessons. These are obviously lessons that you two-year-old is not going to understand or have the physical capability of going through. For that reason, many parents of young children count music lessons out completely until their children are much older. That is a shame, considering the value children can get out of early childhood music programs.

An early childhood music program is designed specifically for younger children. They typically have a maximum age limit for participants, rather than a minimum age limit. They are designed to use music and movement to help children develop...

Students who suffer from learning differences truly do suffer. Not just in the classroom, where they often feel less than adequate, but on the playground as well. Almost every student who has a learning difference such as dyslexia, ADD, autism, or a special education label has been the target of bullying.

We often hear reports of this on a regular basis, and it is heartbreaking to say the least. No student should be at the mercy of peers, but especially a student who is struggling in some capacity anyway. The bullies target victims; that's how it has always been. But, do special education students and students who struggle to learn need to be victims?

Our education system has set them up to be just those...special classes where they are...

There are only two options for you to learn how to properly play bass guitar; whether you hire an instructor or download an online course. Self studying can be a good idea provided that you have a strong foundation in music; meaning, you are already playing other instruments like piano, guitar or even a violin. In this case, you have had developed listening skill. But for some, this might not be the case. There are so many advantages a formal learning medium can do to you on your initial stages of bass guitar playing. Below are some of them discussed by Helene Goldnadel a music teacher and life coach:

It is undeniable that all of us love music; we just differ in the kind of music we like to play and listen frequently. Music plays a huge part in our life and life without music would seem so dull. Even when we were still inside our mother's womb up to the day we came out, we hear music play on the background or hear our beloved moms hum a lullaby. Babies easily fall asleep when they hear lullabies and most mothers believe that making their child listen to music at an early age can boost development of their musical skills.

Aside from inducing sleep and making us feel relaxed, music also helps develop our brain. Studies have proven that musical education or training helps develop the left side of the brain which is responsible in...

It's not a myth that children who attend music lessons do better in school. This is based on the fact that while acquiring musical education both parts of the brain are activated, the linear and logical one, as well as that side responsible for artistic and intuitive skills. Learning music theory and rhythm is strongly related to mathematical principles, so it's no wonder that kids who study music find easier to understand mathematics.

Cognitive skills, memory and focus are also enhanced through music lessons. Apart from developing a child's mental skills, studying music also has an impact on the little one's personality. Self discipline, confidence, creativity are important personality traits that stimulate a child's evolution. These...

Most people think that with all the technology and advancements that we enjoy, people should have no problems finding ways to correct unacceptable child behavior. It's true that there are tons of outlets for finding tips for parents and child development advice. Many people have gone that route, and have turned their ways of thinking around and decided that raising kids in the old school way is best.

The morals and lessons of times gone by will help you to raise happy, healthy, well-mannered children. In the 1860's or even 1950's, it was rare to see a child talk back or even question a parent's authority, without the parent spanking their child. Old school rules can bring back those happier family times.

Research has shown that music can enhance memory, not only in children but for humans of all ages. Music and movement can also be used to teach children to remain healthy and active. This makes early childhood music classes important for childhood fitness, memory and a variety of other learning developments.

This explains the movement toward early childhood music courses. They are more than just a way for wealthy parents to indulge their children. Kids of all ages can benefit, especially with the more affordable community programs now being offered. In generations past music lessons might have been a luxury reserved for the higher classes of society, but that is no longer the case today. Helene Goldnadel observes music and movement...
