Are Children (ages 3-5) allowed to listen to music during the 3 weeks?


Children should not listen to music in the 3 weeks.

If they did not reach the age of Chinuch (2-5 years old), and there is a need (to distract and calm them) one may be lenient.

In any case, when permissible, adults should not pay attention to it.
