Source:University of ArizonaSummary:Children who grow up listening to music with their parents report having better quality relationships with their moms and dads when they reach young adulthood, researchers found.

If you're a parent whose teenagers spend family road trips with earbuds firmly in place, you may want to encourage them to unplug, then turn the car radio to something the whole family can enjoy.

It just might do wonders for your future relationship with your son or daughter, according to a new study from the University of Arizona.Researchers found that young men and women who shared musical experiences with their parents during childhood -- and especially during adolescence -- report having better relationships with their moms and dads as they enter young adulthood.
"If you have little kids, and you play music with them, that helps you be closer to them, and later in life will make you closer to them," said study co-author Jake Harwood, professor and head of the UA Department of Communication.

Very interesting @coolpinkone ! Growing up, my parents were very supportive of my interest in music.  I am so thankful that they encouraged me.  It did bond us.

when my son was young, we shared a love for music. I would go to his room and listen to Nirvana, Metallica and he would come downstairs to listen to whatever classical piece/classical-rock/country that I thought that he would like. It did bond us. Just the other day I took my grandson to buy a ukulele and harmonica. We enjoy playing together on the piano (no official tunes for him, he just enjoys experimenting with the sound and I love the bonding tine. We have been playing piano together since he could sit up. Now he says he wants to be a rock star and policeman when he grows up. (Could be a career conflict there) ? 

I also believe that music has the power to heal. I will try to find reference/links to studies on that subject. I have a theory that the reverberations from music (turned up loudly enough to actually resonate through the body can promote healing. 

I enjoyed the article. Thanks. Very interesting subject.
