I want my children to love reading because it is such an important part of education, and more importantly, learning. But how do you instill this habit in your kids?
Starting early is essential in building this habit and love for reading. Even if it's just for 5mins with them on your lap reading, it helps too! We let our daughter choose the books she wants to read, and read them with her. Now, she readily picks our her fave books and asks to be read :D Being a role model makes a difference too - so keep those gadgets away during reading.Read more
It is very important for a child to get into a habit of reading, that's why it is good to introduce them to reading at a very young age. Not only reading books to your would make a difference, but let your child watch you reading. If your child is too young, don't force him to read. Let him enjoy the activity and not feel it as a punishment. :)Read more
