  3. Play them prior to family meetings—a fun way to learn and talk together about what’s important living together as a family.
  4. Offer your child headphones to immerse themselves into the sea of sound. 
  5. Crank up the tunes and sing together in the car.

“I love your songs so much that I drop the kids off at school and turn it on full blast and sing and sing and sing…”

–Lynn Kelly, Washington, D.C.

“..…a wonderful, beautifully produced project. We’re impressed with the excellent kid singers, arrangements, songs and production. You’ve done that VERY challenging thing of giving positive messages in a non-preachy way and we know that’s no easy job.”

–Cathy Fink, Children’s Music Grammy winner

Music Lights Up Over A Dozen Areas In The Brain

These songs are an effective, almost magical medium for building character, social and emotional skills—a fun way to “make the medicine go down.” Most of us still remember the words to songs from our childhood. Don’t you still sing the ABC song in your head when you’re trying to remember alphabetical order? This is the magic of music. It reinforces concepts across multiple intelligences. 

“We received Dr. Mac’s songs as a gift for our son who has almost every CD made for his age group on the market. Without a doubt, this is his favorite! The lyrics in these songs stand out in a way that’s obvious, as they talk directly to kids about behavior, communication, and other issues or problems that they are experiencing every day. In a joyful and magical way they invite kids to participate in their own solutions.”

–Michael McDonald, singer/songwriter

Music for kids can also be an effective means of teaching character.

Why not have fun, positive songs for kids that are also really educational? A number of Happy Kids Songs focus on helping kids with kindness, manners and how to be more respectful.

Children learn in their families, in one way or the other, for better or worse, about things such as the purpose of life, the reason for suffering, and what it is to be a good person. Character education occurs whether or not such things are ever discussed directly in the household.

“It was a painless and fun way to introduce different concepts of good manners and character to my kids. We loved these songs and the messages they conveyed!”

–Lextinacademy blogspot

“The happy, cheerful music that is full of quality sounds is paired with lyrics that strengthen character without talking down to the girls. Happy Kids Songs makes for a happy mama, too!”
