Andrew McCluskey's curator insight, September 20, 2013 6:21 PM

Really interesting study out of Turkey and a decent sample size, over 1200 high school students.  They correlated music preference against childhood depression.  Kids with heavy metal music in their playlists had significantly higher depression scores than others.  However these kids also had greater problematic parent issues whereas those with alcohol issues tended to listen to dance and hip-hop.

 

Quite what it all means is where it gets dangerous - do you end up depressed and listening to heavy metal 'cos your home environment sucks?  Or do you fall under the "spell" of the metal gods and suddenly turn into a surly teenager with no respect?

 

I severely doubt the latter but you can bet that that's the spin the press will put on it if it gets hold the study.

Before you decide if your child is ready for preschool, check in with the preschools you're considering. Many schools have requirements such as full potty training.

Deborah McNelis's curator insight, April 2, 2013 5:26 PM

Children need the opportuntiy for imaginative play to develop the highest thinking areas of the brain responsible for self regulation and executive function.

Tess Sorensen's comment, April 6, 2013 6:34 PM
"Play is created by children, not adults." Adults, learn to step back and let the children lead. Do not ever think that you are only a teacher, you must remember to be a learner also.
