Music to Their Ears

Here are Five Ways Parents Can Help Their Children Learn About Music from Music Together’s Kenneth Guilmartin:

Simply sing and dance with your child. The best thing you can do to help set your child on the road to a lifelong love of music is to participate enthusiastically in music activities yourself. Have you ever noticed how instinctively children try to imitate older siblings and grownups? Imitation is an important part of how they learn. Children learn to talk this way, as well as to walk. If you read books, they’ll want to read. If you sing and dance, they will, too.

KentuckyShow! Giveaway

We’ve got a whopper of a giveaway this week.  At the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, there’s an amazing production going on called KentuckyShow!.

This breathtaking, large screen, multi-media production narrated by Ashley Judd really captures the unique elements that make our Bluegrass State so spectacular.  It’s even one of the recommended attractions in Louisville on tripadvisor!

Family Challenge- Family Dinner

“What’s for dinner?” Most nights this question is directed at my husband. Unfortunately for him, I don’t cook. For a few years, he held out hope I would change my mind, but 11 years and 2 kids later my specialty remains take-out.

Parent’s Perspective- Part 6

Carrie Vittitoe, parent-writer for Today's Family magazine, gives us her perspective on summer break and getting back into the swing of things in a new school year.

And They’re Off! When I was a childless middle school teacher, I lived for the quiet and ease of summer break. Now that I have three young children and my summers are not quiet or easy, I feel differently. My kids bicker and throw tantrums during the summer months, and I tire of playing concierge for my kids.
