Listening to music at an early age is believed to make children smarter. HollyMoms — do you agree with this concept?
Many mommies believe that musical influences during childhood are imperative to early development. Law & Order‘s Elisabeth Röhm, 37, is one of those parents who believes in this wholeheartedly. “Music is really important for their development,” Elisabeth told HollyBaby.com exclusively at the Juno Jr. Launch event at FAO Schwarz in NYC on Sept. 25. “Music helps [2-year-old daughter Easton] express herself.”
When “she’s singing, she feels comfortable to express herself when she’s sad or frustrated or happy or excited,” Elisabeth explained. “Music really gives children the ability to feel and know how to express their feelings through singing.”
“You’re dealing with toddlers, so you’re dealing with learning and feelings on another level,” added Elisabeth.
She is delighted that Easton is “very musically inclined.” “She has really taken to the piano,” Elisabeth gushed. “She just loves music in general. So whether it’s rock ‘n’roll or Lady Gaga, she tends to bop around to whatever we’re listening to.” Aww!
