Enroll them in band
Researchers at Ruhr University Bochum found that classical music, more than any other type of tunes, can lower heart rate and calm down brain chatter. Thankfully, there’s a place in your kid’s school that offers near-constant access to classical music: the band room. Starting them early will get them into the genre for life. For your own sanity, though, steer them away from horn instruments (the shiny ones pictured). The learning process for wind and reed instruments tends to be way less harsh on the ears.
