My advice to parents with children who are interested in improving their child’s reading ability would be to start small. Anything is better than nothing. Try to start with short books that interest both you and your children. Aim for two to three read alouds per week, whether at night, waiting for the dentist, sitting in the car line or in between commercials during the football game.
We all have fears in life. Some people may be scared of flying, swimming, or simply sending their kids to school. However real, or disillusioned fears may be they are real to us. We can be told “not to worry,” “everything will be fine,” but in the end our fears remain. Children are no different. And nighttime fears can be a struggle for many parents and children. In my home, we discovered this reality with both of our children simultaneously.
Life is constantly evolving, even if you feel like you are stuck in a rut and the next episode of the same thing will be starting again tomorrow, believe it or not, things are changing around you. Your kids are growing. We are getting older (womp womp). Our communities are expanding and eventually (maybe sooner than later), the ever changing world will push in from around you and you will feel its effects.
