It is exciting to hear that your favorite band is coming to the area! Many parents are inclined to buy two tickets and leave the kids at home. But, instead of making it a couple’s night out… why not consider planning a family fun night?
Even though you assume that your kids won’t want to go, there are many times when concerts provide the perfect opportunity to create family memories and build relationships together.
Introduce Your Kids to Your Music
Have you played your favorite album in the car or the kitchen, and your kids heard you singing along? You might be surprised to know how much your kids have been exposed to the music that you listened to many years ago.
Classics are often played on the radio, at dances, and in movies. If your kids haven’t heard the music before, they just might have a great time being introduced to the music that you loved.
Getting Ready Before the Concert
If you are planning to take the family to see a concert with older music, make sure that your kids have some exposure before the show. Play the music at home when you get a chance. You might even make it an event by taking your kids to a store that sells original vinyl records with tracks that may be played at the concert.
Sometimes these old concerts might have the original band members. Other times, it is a cover band playing the music. Either way, you will be able to expose your family to the music that you loved so much when you were younger.
Building Family Relationships
As a parent, it is important that you take opportunities to build relationships with your kids. Music can help to solidify the memories, building family traditions that will last a lifetime. How often do you associate a song with a specific memory? Concerts and other music-related activities will give your kids a chance to build these memories for themselves.
Spending more time together means that you can strengthen your relationships. You can have fun, dance, and create a night that will be worth remembering. Improve the experience by going out to dinner together or planning another activity along with the concert.
Another way that you can build lasting memories with your children is by attending newer concerts with their favorite musicians. It might not be your dream to see Beyonce on stage, but your kids might be over-the-top excited when they get the concert tickets for Christmas.
