To prove this the researchers had parents sing a novel song to the 11-months old infants and then the infants were made to watch two other strangers sing two different songs. Later each stranger was sent to give the infant a toy. The result was those who sang the familiar song sung by the parent or a toy were more likely to get a positive response from the infant. Although more research needs to be done this journal shows that parents singing to their children actually creates a rapport and bond between the child and the parent.
