Just as children are inoculated in their early years against later illness, so too does the development of early social and emotional skills provide a “vaccine” against later behavioral problems such as bullying. This music CD supports teachers’ and parents’ efforts to give children the necessary skills to later become a good friend, student, spouse, parent and citizen.
TAKE CARE (suggested for ages 3-6+) addresses the chain of early prosocial skills that promote positive social and emotional development. Self-awareness leads to self-regulation. Other awareness leads to perspective taking which is the cornerstone of empathy. Learning these early skills greatly reduces the likelihood of bullying and other negative behaviors in childhood. This CD is presented in a variety of musical styles and features a variety of performing artists including David Kisor, Mary Hulefeld, Spring Starr Pillow, and newcomer-Demi Mays, in addition to other guest and children vocalists. Key tracks include “A Little Bit Different, a Lot The Same”, “Sadako’s Song”,
“All The Same Inside”, and “You and Me Celebration”.
