How to teach a child to listen to music? Parents ask such a question, looking at how their restless children run, play, dance. The culture of listening to music is not only that the child is immersed in the sounds of the melody, but also does so in a calm state (sitting in a chair, lying on the rug).

That is why the therapy of childhood fears should begin even during fetal development. Do not underestimate this period of human life. Continue reading
