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!!!
