Kill the wabbit…

Last night we had a family home evening lesson on choosing good music.  We told the children that some songs have a message that is not good, and that even though they may not understand what a song is about, it is important to only listen to the good songs.  We would help them to choose until they were old enough to choose for themselves.  I also played a couple of different songs for them to illustrate how different music makes you feel different.  We listened to a hymn, and ended with “Ride of the Valkyries” by Wagner.  I picked the children up one at a time and helped them “fly”around the living room like superheroes.

Right before bed.

Needless to say, bedtime did not go very well last night.  Silly me.  I should know the power of music!!!

sounds like a good family night!!! I read the post title and automatically thought of that song - it reminded me of 2 things - Elmer Fudd, and our family trips to the pittsburgh symphony.

wascally wabbit.... :)

Love it. Joel listens to Wagner all. the. time. so I think our kids have been fairly well exposed to that music. Maybe we could use a little pop music over here?
