Need advice regarding music for children

[deleted account] ( 6 moms have responded )

Hi all, my 5 year old girl (soon to be 6), has a huge interest in music. We've kind of been battling with it as she wants to listen to Hannah Montana like all her friends. While I don't think there's anything wrong with HM I do not feel that it's appropriate for my little girl, I think it's more for 8-10 year olds. Recently a friend of hers started listening to Taylor Swift and that too I have told her there is nothing wrong with it, it's just not appropriate for little girls. Does anyone have any suggestions? She has asked if she can listed to Kidz Bop and I've checked out some of it but it's basically just main stream music sung by kids right? How do you all handle this? Or am I making a big deal out of nothing? I just dont want her walking around the house singing about her body or kissing or things like that. She's too young for that. I appreciate your help with this! God Bless, Lisa

My kids 8, 6, 4 listen to Hillsong, Micheal W. Smith, Sarah Kelly and many other up beat christian singers & groups. Check out your local christian book store they will probably have a wide variety to choose from. May be try a compelation disc first with a selection of different artists and see what she likes best. There is also things like Veggie Tales and God Rocks which is especially for kids and they have DVD's & CD's too. I hope this helps.

Thanks for your help! I put some of my older Christian cd's on her mp3 player and that seems to be making her happy right now. The toughest part is dealing with the kids in school and on the bus who get to listen to whatever they want. Can you think of any main-streamers that are okay for this age???

We mainly listen to Praise and Worship music in our home. The kids have Sunday school songs on CD, and a CD from VBS last summer. I would actually recommend something like Britt Nicole, Avalon, or Natalie Grant. Although when I was 5 or 6 I loved something like the Gather Trio... but that's been a long time ago...

Lisa, we have had those very discussions in our house. We have got some Hillsong Kids and other kids praise music and that seems to work for us right now. We also have some CD's from going to VBS in the summer that the kids love. Hope you find something that works for your daughter.
