Sing?

I love my DD's singing...mostly.

She hasn't been taught how to sing from her diaphragm yet (I am looking into getting her lessons but most places I have found want her to be 5) so It is kind of just a shrill high pitched squeal.

It drives DF crazy and hurts his ears...me I'm half deaf so it doesn't bother me as much as him but sometimes I just have to tell her to give it a rest for a while.

 But I feel bad because she is singing because she is happy and I don't wanna stifle her happiness KWIM?

What would you do?

 My daughter, yes, she can't sing, which is sad for me because I can :(

I would tell my husband that unless he has a migraine he is going to have to suck it up. But if she is singing for say too long, then maybe also step in and tell her its time to take a break.

Tell DF to deal with it, LOL.

Yeah, it can get annoying at times, but I'm a firm believer in NOT stifling a child's way of creative expression.

I would get her dad some ear plugs.

This. Sometimes I can't take the 24/7 chatter, asking for 5 minutes og quiet isn't too much.

I like the ear plugs idea. And perhaps a little 'studio' in her room to practice by herself :) Then she can put on shows instead of practicing with an audience.

***before you jump down my throat be very certain of the tone and intent you believe is coming from my posts because if you are just trolling me you can go screw yourself. I am done apologizing for people who have no reading comprehension skills and instead insert their own assumed intent and meaning in to my words. ***
