Twelve Year Olds Transform!

Wonderful things have happened for so many people because of singing Love Peace and Harmony. As a former elementary school teacher and administrator one of the experiences that really touched my heart was that of a teacher in Mumbai. She taught 11 -12 year olds who were struggling with their school work. 

In India students’ entire future depends on passing tests. The grade level of her students is particularly significant. When parents came for conferences, after the first round of tests (all of the students scored at least several points higher than before) they said to her, “I don’t know what you are doing with my children they are doing well and they are even becoming pleasant.” Some variation of this was said by many of the parents. From my experience, this is not always the first thing a parent says about a child at this age level.

Her “secret” for this wonderful transformation was to have the students sing Love Peace and Harmony every day for 15 minutes!
