We all know that reading at home helps children perform better in school. But sometimes when they aren’t given that important opportunity to read, they tend to fall behind in school and can actually continue spiraling down through middle school, high school and beyond.
So what is the key to get children started early with good reading habits? And most importantly, getting them to do this willingly and eagerly without bribery or manipulation?
Make a special reading spot
Designate a special reading spot in your home for children to read. Create a distraction-free zone where children can concentrate. Make it clear that reading is top priority in your family so that good habits will develop young.
Set a good example
If a child observes their parents reading every night, then they will simply emulate the same behavior.
Reading with your child every day for 20 minutes reinforces the importance of reading. If you are watching tv every night, guess what your child will be doing too?
Children are only limited by what they can imagine. And by reading, their minds can expand their imagination and also lead them to better concentration to prepare them for a successful school year.
