5 Tips To Get Your Child Fall In Love With Reading




As the popular saying goes, “Leaders are Readers”. Dear Mommy and Daddy, Do you genuinely desire your children to fall in love with reading without much drama? Then here are 5 tips you need to employ to achieve this goal according to American Academy of Pediatrics:

1 Model good reading behavior

If kids see you reading, they will be more likely to pick up a book themselves.

2. Read together before bedtime

Get quality time together at the end of the day. Reading out loud helps kids bring the words to life. Talk about the story together. Ask questions like, “What do you think will happen next?” You can switch things up some nights and ask your school-age child to read a book to you!

3. Read with friends 

A book club with friends can give kids a way to share and learn about different views. Kids can talk about a book, their favorite characters, or how they think the book could have ended differently.

4. Keep books around

If there’s always a book within reach, kids will be more likely to pick one up and read, even for a few minutes at a time.

5. Travel with reading material

 Bring books for car rides, for example, or waiting to see a doctor. Books are a great option instead of a tablet or a smartphone.

In conclusion, when books are part of the family routine, kids’ language skills grow. Books can also help parents teach important values and understand difficult events in real life. They can read alone, or you can make it a family affair.
