Many children are reluctant readers. They're uninspired by the content, struggle with vocabulary or are simply more interested in other things. It's possible your child has trouble putting down a book, but so many parents pull their hair out trying to figure out how to motivate their child to read.
So, how do you ensure your child soars in reading without making it seem like another mundane to-do-task? By getting your child to fall in love with reading.
Children need to read about what they enjoy. And, while focusing on reading skills is important, parents should first support their children in the topics that they love to make them feel more at ease with reading.
The goal of reading is not to read every word accurately, but it is to connect to characters and lessons in books which in turn, helps us understand ourselves more.
Reading is also a journey. Although everyone’s journey may not look the same, we are all on a journey of discovery. When we are a part of this process, we engage more, practice more, take risks, and know that reading can be achieved by everyone with help, encouragement and support from our biggest fans.
