I try to be a cool mom. One of the ways I see fit to do this is to listen to the songs they are currently listening to.
For daughters who play the piano, flute and guitar (no formal training except for music lessons with the flute in school) and a husband who is a gifted piano player, music is a part of our family.
I have a teenager, an adolescent son and a pre-adolescent daughter who have earbuds in their ears at times. Their preferences are not the usual pop and dance songs.
I do love their song choices (except for some, lol) because these are exactly the kind of music I prefer at times, a bit loud, fast and noisy.
Sometimes I joke them what could be the singers’ entertainer’s secret and that even if these songs are played over and over and the singers don’t get “tired”. Ok, private joke.
This study that Kids Who Like Unconventional Music More Likely to become Delinquent is a bit disturbing though. I sure do hope that kids who are into these music will not likely be delinquents.
