When the children get high as a kite, I find classical music works wonders. It has an amazing calming affect, relaxing them and I find focusing them too. Yesterday my two woke up and were giddy from the off. I think ‘back to school’ has caught up with them and after an hour or so of being up and about they were bickering away like nobody’s business. Something had to give so I thought I’d change the tempo by putting on some classical music. The effect was instant. Narky children no more!!! My son became absorbed in his train set (completely self initiated) and my daughter set her mind to some loom banding. It was like someone had waved a magic wand. They became instantly industrious. Bizarre but true. Try it today!!!
