Whether your favorite song is Meghan Trainor’s, “All About That Bass” or Neil Diamond’s, “Forever In Blue Jeans”, chances are, your kids are going to hate it. At least at our house, anyway. I’m speaking from personal experience here. It seems any song I really dig, my kids don’t. Not only that, but they protest, loudly, every time the song plays.
If I want to get my groove on, I should have the right. There has to be perks to being the mom.
For the love … at least allow my music without debate. With that in mind, I have developed 10 sure fire ways to convince the kids your favorite song is the bomb diggety. Call it reverse psychology. Or whatever.
Every time the song plays:
1) Turn it up. Really loud
2) Sing louder than the music
3) Add dance moves
4) Use hand gestures
5) Play the song again
6) Hold a fake microphone
7) Add some air guitar
8) Play the song while they sleep. Subliminal, people. It’s real
9) Encourage an impromptu family dance off
10) Play the song again. The down side to this? By the time your kids catch on to your groovy tune, you will be completely over the song and therefore will need to choose a new song to love.
Hey, nothin’ wrong with a little musical appreciation class.
