Have you heard the saying that “music soothes the savage beast” before? I have and I utilized music as a single mom at dinnertime. Playing happy, relaxing music slows the day and creates a quality to dinner time and study time too.
Retail stores use music to keep you shopping and happy about spending your money. Why not use music to your advantage?
You can go online and look up all the studies of how different sounds and music affect the brain. Try it for yourself. All you need to do is to go to YouTube and type in “music for studying” or “music for eating.” Give your family a week of light background music for mealtimes and homework. Decide for yourself if this is something for your family to do on a regular basis.
The stress levels during these moments may become reduced and academic grades could improve! To me it is worth a try!
God Bless You!
