Just as children are inoculated in their early years against later illness, so too does the development of early social and emotional skills provide a "vaccine" against later behavioral problems such as bullying. These two CDs support teachers', and parents' efforts to give children the necessary skills to later become a good friend, student, spouse, parent and citizen.

TAKE CARE (suggested for ages 3-6+) addresses the chain of early pro-social skills that promote positive social and emotional development. Self-awareness leads to self-regulation. Other awareness leads to perspective taking which is the cornerstone of empathy. Learning these early skills greatly reduces the likelihood of bullying and other negative behaviors in childhood. This CD is presented in a variety of musical styles and features a variety of performing artists including David Kisor, Mary Hulefeld, Spring Starr Pillow, and newcomer-Demi Mays, in addition to other guest and children vocalists. Key tracks include "A Little Bit Different, a Lot The Same", "Sadako's Song", "All The Same Inside", and "You and Me Celebration".

EVERYONE IS SOMEONE (suggested for ages 7+) engages children in pro-social skills such as Acceptance, Friendship, Teamwork, Empathy and Responsibility. Compelling songs challenge older children to not only take responsibility for their own actions, but to also "own" the outcomes of their social world. Children become aware that they are either the obstacle to or the solution for making their world a place of peace and love. This CD is presented in a contemporary pop/rock musical style and features a variety of performing artists including David Kisor, Spring Starr Pillow, newcomers Demi Mays and Jennifer Ellis and guest performer, Kelly Richey. Key tracks include "Take the Bull out of Bullying", "What If Everyone Did It Too?", and "The Whole World's Watching".

In 2013, GROWING SOUND will introduce a workshop/educational training, and elementary school-age assembly program titled: Promote Friendship! Prevent Bullying!"  In addition, there will be a resource manual, a curriculum kit and other support materials. Both CDs, TAKE CARE andEVERYONE IS SOMEONE, are available through Select Retailers, Amazon, CD Baby, iTunes, and the GROWING SOUND website.
