Music strengthens family relationships

I found this as I was reading an insert to a baby DVD series I have called Classical Baby. It was written by Gene Beresin, a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, and father of 4 children.

"Sharing creative and loving experiences can help build what child development experts call a 'secure attachment' between your children and you..."
Attachment theories are normally associated with infants and toddlers, but in this instance I feel it can be expanded to apply to your children!

"...This fosters healthy intellectual, emotional, social and moral development. The process of listening, playing and learning together not only brings you closer to your child, but stimulates your child's self-expression, appreciation of arts, and motivation to explore."

As if you needed any more motivation to play music with your child :)
