If parents don't read, it is a sign that they are not introducing their children to the joy of reading. However, reading is an option and parents can continue school's promotion of reading.
Although schools require children to read books, this does not have the same impact as parental guidance. Reading English textbooks in school is even considered compulsory homework.
Although schools make every effort to encourage children to read, they fail to inspire enthusiasm. Writing a report or taking a test about your favorite book would take away some of the enjoyment.
The best people to teach reading love are parents. You can teach your children the value of reading with the right approach.
1. Make movies your ally. Watching a movie that interests you can be a great way to introduce your child to reading. One example is the Harry Potter series. While book readers do go to the movies, some moviegoers decide to read the books afterward. Star Wars is another example. Star Wars books are more popular than movies.
2. Do not overlook nonfiction. Many people believe that only fiction can inspire a love for reading. Children can find many nonfiction books very fascinating. Children's curiosity can be satisfied by books about animals, planets, birds, planes, skyscrapers, and other topics. Nonfiction books can be extremely interesting and can teach children the fascinating and useful information that is available within books.
3. Listen to your children. It can backfire if you force your children to read material that is not interesting to them. They'll be puzzled why boredom is important. Find a book about football for your son if he is a football fan.
