Last week, a young toddler in Fort Wayne Indiana demonstrated that music can be one of the most effective ways to teach children. His mother decided she would teach him their new address by making up a song. Nine days later, she was home alone with her son when she fell down a flight of stairs and lost consciousness. Her four year old son called 911 and sang the "address song" he'd learned from his mother over and over again until the operator realized what he was saying. Help was dispatched and this young toddler ended up saving his mother's life.
The happy mom said, "I took child development in high school, and there I learned if you teach a child any kind of music or a rhyme, they will actually pick it up quicker. I taught him his phone number, his address and he knows how to spell several words because of the songs."
