Make Reading Enjoyable!

Posted on July 14, 2016 at 11:27 AM by Christina Stuck

Has your child ever resisted sitting down to read? It can be frustrating, especially when you know how beneficial reading is. But, reading together should not be a power struggle. If it becomes that way, then the child will unfortunately associate reading with a bad taste. To help not produce this outcome, just wait for a better time to read a book. You could even skip a few pages in the book or just simply point at the pictures and make up a story. I do this a lot in story time when I notice not many are following in my reading.

And never fret! A child will grow up loving to read if reading time is enjoyable and consistent. Some days are better than others; even certain times of the day are better than others. Keep working on it. You are doing great!
