Children And Divorce: Help Your Children Cope With Life Through Music


Divorce can take a toll on your life and on the lives of your children. You may eventually learn to cope with the dissolution of your marriage, but some or all of your children may struggle with the changes in their lives. Unless your children learn to cope with the divorce, the stress they feel now can overwhelm them later in life. Music is one way to help your children cope with life's ups and downs.

How Can You Help Your Children?

Listening to music or playing a musical instrument is a great way to relieve stress, anxiety, and other negative emotions. One of the most creative and effective ways to relieve stress is playing the piano. Children of all ages can use the piano to master a new skill, improve their hand and eye coordination, and cope with tough situations. Piano playing may also calm or soothe the chemicals in the brain that control, react, or trigger ongoing (chronic) stress.

Ongoing stress can create a host of issues for your children, including poor health and depression. Stress can also prematurely age the brain, one of the most prevalent organs in the human body. Your children may experience problems learning in school, getting along with other children, and making sound decisions in life. Piano playing and other musical outlets can help prevent these problems.

You can help your children learn to cope with the divorce by signing them up for piano lessons.

How Do You Begin?

If it's not possible to obtain piano lessons for each child yourself, ask the other parent for help. The other parent may have the same concerns about your children's emotional grievances as you do. If the other parent doesn't agree with the lessons, obtain lessons for your most troubled child first. As you become more independent, secure lessons for your other children.

You may notice positive changes in your children's attitude and behavior. If your children successfully overcome their emotional problems, you may wish to reward them with treats or trips to the movies. You can also look into community activities, such as recitals and school plays. Some of your children may wish to showcase their new skills in one of these outlets.

If you have questions about how to obtain piano lessons for your children, contact a piano teacher or instructor for more information. Many teachers provide lessons to children of all ages, including preschoolers. Companies like KarenRibbens can help.

Music Makes the World a Happier Place

Ever since I was a young child, I have loved singing. While I never became a professional singer, I sing in a local chorus and I love putting on shows. However, I also enjoy listening to music and when someone asks me what my favorite music genre is, I tell them "all of them!" However, I especially love seasonal music and am always eager to turn on holiday music as soon as the weather begins getting cooler in the fall. I recently decided that more people need to embrace music, because it has healing qualities and really makes the world a happier place. I decided to create a blog to share my favorite new music finds, tips for singers, and many other music-related tips on! Come back often for a little music education and a lot of fun!
