HOW TO USE THE POSITIVE MESSAGES from OUR SONGS Part 1 – Introduction

Music is a powerful tool! Grandpa Steve’s music has been written for you and your child.  We hope you will enjoy the messages and the catchy melodic ideas and words in these songs.  These messages are designed to give direction, inspiration, and practical ideas to foster positive self-esteem in your young child.  Our music is aimed at parents and their children ages, birth to 6-7 years of age.  These songs and ideas provide a framework to help children feel good about themselves and do the best that they can in life.

Self-esteem is developed in a child, by first, cherishing the child for who they are, regardless of what they look like or what they can do.  “You are my child, and I love you because you are you.”   This is unconditional love.  Secondly, helping your child to be the best human being that they can be.  Helping them to do their very best.  The more a child can learn and know how to use and apply these lessons, the better able they are to survive and thrive.  The better they can develop themselves, and build confidence in themselves.  The third point is to help your child to prepare for their life to come, helping them to become good, curious, and efficient learners and develop good social and emotional skills.   Parents can help their child manage and understand their emotions. Humans are emotional beings, and we can use our emotions to help us throughout our lives.  As we understand our emotions, we are better able to utilize them effectively.  Emotions create action!  Action creates results!

We’ve chosen ages birth to 7 years of age for this package.  This is the period of your child’s life in which you have the most influence.  You are your child’s first teacher.  What you convey to them through your love and your words and your child rearing practices, has a strong impact on how they are going to feel about themselves for the rest of their lives.  “Imprint good memories, words, and ideas in your child’s mind and psyche and that will help them sail in life with a healthy cargo inside and in a positive direction.”  Burden them with negative and limiting thoughts and ideas and they set sail with negative cargo inside.  They become “not confident” in where they want to go in life.

The influence over the core of your child’s belief system begins to diminish when your child enters school and leaves their sheltered home.  Others, including siblings, friends, even advertisers begin to throw messages at your child.  Some good messages, some not so healthy.  From birth to age 7, you have a unique opportunity to influence your child’s life more than any other time in their life.
