Future Directions for Popular Music and Parenting / Shelley Brunt and Liz Giuffre."Popular Music and Parenting explores the culture of popular music as a shared experience between parents and young children. Offering a critical overview of this topic from a popular music studies perspective, this book expands our assumptions about how young audiences and caregivers experience music together. Using both case studies and wider analysis, the authors explore music listening and participation between children and parents in both domestic and public settings, ranging across children's music media, digital streaming, live concerts, formal and informal popular music education, music merchandising, and song lyrics.
