By Nick O’Connell, Business Insider StaffWhat are you listening to?
Kids singing, according to new research.
A study by researchers at the University of Queensland’s Department of Psychology, and published in the Journal of Research in Personality, found that children with older parents were not as interested in singing as their younger siblings.
Researchers surveyed 562 Australian children and their parents aged between six and 12, finding that parents of all ages sang a greater number of songs at home than did children of younger parents.
What they found was that children of older parents sang more frequently and at higher volumes than children of parents with younger parents, even after adjusting for age, gender and education.
The study also found that older parents’ song preferences were different to those of their younger children.
The researchers were looking for reasons for this.
For instance, older parents might be more interested in the musical qualities of a song or the meaning of lyrics.
What’s more, older children might also be less likely to sing to their older siblings than younger children, and they may not even sing in their own language, the researchers said.
They suggested that older children may not be listening to a song as much as their older brothers and sisters are.
What to doIf you have children, it’s important to understand what’s going on in your family.
First, try to identify what’s making them sing.
The researchers looked at what songs they liked to sing and which songs they wanted to sing as children.
If they liked singing to the right songs and liked singing together, they might not want to sing songs from the same group.
The most important thing is that your children listen to the music they want to listen to.
If your kids do want to be singing, it may help to take some time to discuss what’s happening.
There are several ways to do this, such as listening to children sing as a group, playing a song together, listening to the children sing individually or with adults, or by themselves.
You may also want to have a song written down, as you can check to make sure the lyrics are the same.
Another way to find out what your children are listening to is to have them write down what songs are most important to them and which ones they’d rather not hear.
This may include reading children’s books or watching children sing songs.
If you can’t find any of these, talk to your children about what they’re listening to and where they are listening.
For example, you may want to give your children a list of songs you’ve recently heard and try to give them an answer to the song question in a way that fits in with their needs.
You can also try to listen together to music and see if you can agree on a song that you like.
You’ll need to keep a list and a diary of songs your children have listened to, so you can see what they are singing about.
The research was conducted by researchers from the Department of Psychological Sciences, University of Brisbane, and the School of Psychology at the Queensland University of Technology.
It was funded by the Australian Research Council.
