We've been trying to play a little classical music for my kids (it's supposed to make em smarter), and I've oddly been lstening to it and enjoying it myself... So today my daughter asks me to put on the nutcracker music while she sits and draws on her little magnetic drawing thing, so I put on the CD and start it from the beginning. Heres the amazing thing: The beginning of the cd has some kind of "dark" music. A little into the music she gets very frustrated and starts slamming the pen into the board thing and saying "I can't get this thing to look right!", I tell her to calm down, so she does, then gets frustrated and does it again. I flipped a couple tracks forward on the cd to some "brighter" music, and she sat and drew a very nice picture of raccoons happily and without any trouble. Just friggin amazing to me how the music can so dramatically affect her mood and how she handles problems... So if you have kids, beleive me, what they're listening to really does affect them!!
