“People Aren’t Food”

8 Feb

OK, I had to post this clip from “Modern Family.” In class, I’m frequently talking about how wonderful music can be to smooth over rough spots, help get kids moving in the morning, make bath time more fun — especially when you make up your own words to songs. In this clip, two dads are dealing with how to teach their daughter not to bite other people. One of the dads, Cam, picks up a ukulele (wow!) and sings a song he made up (wow x 2!) about biting. So, so funny. (And the best part is the little extra he tags on at the end.) Let me tell you, though, this singing thing really does work — my kids are now singing around the house, “People aren’t food / People aren’t food / Your friends’ll run away if they’re scared of being chewed.” (OK, and they’re also singing that little tag at the end of the song, too…you’ll see why…)
