Often karaoke is thought of in the form of performances that cater only to the night audience. But it doesn't have to be. My kids and I enjoy karaoke regularly together. In fact, it is one of our favorite family activities. Over the years, I've come to realize it is worth much more than a fun time. Although, it IS quite fun.
Our family has always been close. But karaoke brings us even closer together. This is probably due in part to the fact that you have to work together as a team for duet songs and also because the performances are for each other since there is no other audience.
Karaoke night also helps both young and old expend excess energy, as well as let go of some stress. Feeling extra excited about something? Shout it from the rooftops with your favorite on-topic song. On that same token, if someone is feeling extra grumpy, music can be a great way to express those feelings and soothe the soul. Next to meditation, karaoke is our family's favorite way to deal with a variety of emotions.
Family karaoke night can also be a good way to keep everyone busy. I never hear one “I'm bored” when we do this, which is a huge benefit in itself. If you're feeling extra brave and social, try inviting over friends and other family to join in on the fun.
Thinking of doing karaoke with your family? Here are some of our favorite tips and kid safe songs for family karaoke night: http://www.lifesuccessfully.com/2/post/2011/03/best-family-karaoke-songs-and-tips.html
