Young children need to develop good habits that will be useful to them the rest of their lives. It is important to keep the lessons age-appropriate.

A lot of foreign people say, when asking about eating habits, 'What is your guilty pleasure?' I have no guilt. Whatever I do, I enjoy and it's the point. I think if you start to feel guilty about it, that's a problem. So, no guilty pleasures. I have pleasure and no guilt at all.

I've never really focused on if I had good habits when I sang or if I had bad habits, or if I was breathing correctly.
