This scholarly project pursues the development, implementation, and evaluation of techniques to help improve the health and well-being of children ages 1-5, who have difficulties with challenging behaviors, to effectively manage stress and boost resilience through the incorporation of music and educational techniques of the early childhood educator.

This paper will discuss the positive or negative outcomes on external factors affecting child health, such as economic, judicial, societal, cultural, cognitive development, parental separation, and mental health concerns of all members of the family. It will also discuss the positive effects educational strategies and music can have on young children experiencing challenging behaviors.
