A few months ago, we shared a story about Sound It Out, a campaign by the Ad Council that helps parents and caregivers have meaningful conversations about mental wellbeing with their middle schoolers. Recently Lin-Manuel Miranda and the Miranda family worked with Sound It Out to talk about the importance of having conversations with kids—and how music can help. Watch their candid discussion via Twitter.
Music can be a powerful way to help kids open up about their emotions.✨ Watch as @Lin_Manuel, @VAMNit, @Vegalteno, @ltmphd, @mamacita1126, and @CrespoX6 share their tips for starting the conversation. #SoundItOut pic.twitter.com/nwcU8tlGGL

Conversation Starter Pack for Mental Wellbeing
It can sometimes be challenging to have conversations with your kids about their emotions, but it’s essential to check in with them as their parent or caregiver. This Conversation Starter Pack (CSP) by Sound It Out can help you open up a conversation with your kids and have regular discussions about their thoughts and feelings (even when you aren’t using these cards as a guide). The CSP is designed to give you the space and tools to connect with your kid(s) and spark meaningful emotional wellbeing conversations.
(If you really want to set the vibe, play the exclusive Sound it Out album).
Don’t wait. Talk with your kiddos today.
