These days many people are battling depression. The world is on fire, there is civil unrest, and oh yeah - we are doing our best to make our way through a terrifying pandemic. While we can feel helpless as adults, it is twice as overwhelming for our kids. There is a spike in the number of kids battling depression, and while the reason seems obvious, solutions can be far more difficult to find.
And yet! There is a time tested and clinically proven solution to battling depression that every kid can have access to - music. Engaging in music, whether simply through the voice with singing, or through playing a musical instrument, enhances moods, calms anxiety, and releases stress. According to this article in "Science Daily," music therapy not only reduces depression in kids, but it also boosts self-esteem. This is a major benefit to both adults and kids alike.
