If you asked your kids what culture is, would they know? Today’s society seems to have little focus when it comes to cultural education; however, understanding culture of all types is necessary for a child’s social and academic development. This is an area your kids might not learn at school, so consider doing it yourself. The following includes timeless cultural influences and what you and your child can do to learn about them together.
The symphony. The opera. The theater. Dance. Stand-up comedy. Concerts. The performing arts are a part of culture that flourishes in the best of times and survives the worst. The reason is simple: people love to watch performances.
If you child is into music, take him or her to the symphony to hear classical music, and then discuss how it has influenced today’s music. Then, you can compare and contrast it with a concert of his or her choice to continue the lesson.
