Do We Influence Our Children?
Being a parent is always full of surprises. My children have proven their ability to make me laugh, make me cry and sometimes amaze me. My daughter Shelby is taking after me with her music. Years back, I taught her the baiscs of guitar and she has pleasantly surprised me by sticking with the instrument. I feel that playing guitar has made her a better vocalist and also helped her as a songwriter. Obviously she has been influenced by her friends and their taste in music, but I have been noticing that my tastes in music have also been rubbing off on her. Sometimes I will hear her playing and singing a song that is from "my" genre rather than hers. Here's a few of her favorite songs which are also my favorite songs. And by the way, I never thought she would listen to some of these tunes.
