The Challenges or Encouraging Your Child to Read

Getting your child enthusiastic about reading can often be quite the task for today’s parents, but it doesn't have to be. Tutoring Center in Santa Clara has put together some handy tips to help encourage your child's full reading potential. 


Be a Bookworm

If a child doesn’t ever witness their parent reading, they’re unlikely to want to do so themselves. Associate reading with relaxation and enjoyment, your child regularly seeing you with your nose in a good book or magazine will encourage them to follow your lead.

Read Along With Them

If you’re a busy parent, reading along with your child is great way to develop their reading and language skills whilst enjoying some valuable bonding time. The best part is, this can be done anywhere at any time; the morning paper at the breakfast table, reading the menu when out to dinner at a restaurant or even just street signs that you pass whilst driving to and from school.

Make It Relevant

If you want to encourage your child to read novels or storybooks, ensure you’re offering them a selection that is relevant to their interests. Do your research and find some fun, age appropriate titles about topics that they’re currently interested in.

Be Subtle!

Be subtle about encouraging your child to read. Don’t hound or pressure them into finishing a book, Let them do so at their own pace. Encourage them to read for their own pleasure and not for your approval. Make sure there are plenty of great titles around your home that they can easily pick up and read of their own accord.
