When the World is Unsettling for Your Children, Turn to Music | Musical Play

Updated: Nov 25, 2020

The world is an unsettling place for many of us right at the moment. Have you found yourself gravitating towards music you’ve listened to hundreds of times? Found yourself turning up the radio when a song from your youth comes on?

When the World is Unsettled, Try Turning to Music | Musical Play

Music is profoundly connected to our emotions, and the ability to feel safe and connected through hearing music we love, music that takes us to a particular place or time, is immensely powerful for our mental wellbeing.

The same goes for children.

No matter how old they are, bring back those lullabies you sang to them when they were babies. Turn on the music you played with them – even if it’s for a laugh now. Seek out the songs you remember together and let this be healing. Because we know children are feeling unsettled in a variety of ways – and we know that music that they know and remember is one small way we can connect them, and us, with feelings of safety and relationship and trust.
