Tip

Singing a lullaby while holding your child and rocking together is a great way to help him relax. Knowing how to take time out and relax is very important. Sharing quiet moments with your child builds a relaxation routine for both of you. Next time your child has a temper tantrum, try rocking him to a lullaby and see how quickly he calms down!

- Lambert

Activity

Learn a new lullaby or refresh your mind on a classic one and take moments to relax with your child while singing it.
