An instrumental way to improve your child's hearing...eventually

As any mother of a three-year-old knows, you spend a lot of your time asking your child, "Are you listening to me?" (The answer, by the way, is almost always 'no.'

But what does this mean for parents? Does this mean that your three- or four-year old will suddenly start paying attention when you start talking? Ha, ha, no. (Seriously, did you think that for even a second? You are so funny with your hope and your optimism!) But what it does mean is that in addition to all the other amazing things learning an instrument can bring your child (help with math, patience, dedication), you can also add better hearing to the list.

What instrument did you learn to play as a child? What instrument do you wish you played now? Join the discussion here.

P.S. I am terribly sorry about the awful pun in the title. I couldn't help myself; I was weak.
