There’s no doubt that reading can have a myriad of benefits in life: it helps broaden your horizons, learn new words, practice grammar, among other things. That’s why you should encourage your child to become a reader! Still, this can be easier said than done, so in this installment, The Tutoring Center in Middletown will give you a few ways to sway your child into reading.

How to Encourage Your Child to Read

Let Them Choose

If your child isn’t much of a reader, you can allow them to pick a book that interests them and that will get them hooked. Of course, you should supervise that the material they choose is appropriate for their reading level and age.

Lead the Way

If you’d like your child to be an avid reader, you’ll have to become one yourself. As you know, children look up to their parents and form their habits around them, so take your own advice and read once in a while.

Do It Together

A fun idea to get your child to read is for you to do it together. You can take turns reading a book out loud for each other before bedtime. Moreover, this will give you an opportunity to discuss the book and bond with your child.

Provide the Right Conditions

It’s harder to read if you don’t have the right place and time to do it. This is why you should provide your child with a reading space that’s well-lit and comfortable. You can also create a schedule for your child in which you set a timeframe for them to read.

Visit the Library

The library is a big building dedicated entirely to knowledge, stories and books, which is why you should visit it with your child. This can have an impact on your child that may encourage them to learn more and read.
