If you did not have cover your ears when I sang one of my little ditties you would know what mood I was in or you would learn something. Pleasantly singing your words like “it is time to take a seat” is far more effective than yelling “sit down and shut up!”
OUCH! Did I type that?
Singing the the Children’s Choir when I was 3 years old taught me so many skills such as standing up straight and keeping out of mischief. That singing experience gave me confidence. ( I was the little one on the left behind the man in the glasses. I had no other singing pictures of my own I wanted to use.)
