Parents to encourage their child to read

Here are some tips for parents to encourage their kids to read and turn a young reader’s reluctance into enthusiasm.

  • Develop children's oral language:-Depending on the child’s language skill level, give him a story to read or have a story read to them. When the story is finished, ask your child to pinpoint favorite parts of the story. This can enable children to have fun picking out words and develop an interest to move to the next page.
  • Read several stories every day:-The more children are exposed to literature, the more reading will become part of their daily life. A child is introduced to new information, concepts, and phonemic awareness with every story.
  • Encourage a wide variety of reading activities:-Make reading an essential part of your children’s lives. Let them read menus, movie name, roadside signs, game guides, weather reports, and other practical everyday information. Always try to make sure your children have something to read in their spare time.

  • Use technology to increase self-esteem:- Technology is changing the way we all learn, and it can have a positive impact on kids and their reading.Building self-esteem through applied technology and increased reading skills can have a positive ripple-effect on every other area of a student’s life.
  • Let them choose what they read:-Reading for pleasure is one of the best ways for a child to improve his performance at school, but teaching a child to love reading involves a lot more than simply handing him a book. Letting children have choices in their reading material goes a long way in raising life-long readers. Kids who choose what they read, regardless of whether it’s a novel, a comic book, or a magazine, are more engaged with what they are reading and more likely to retain the information.
  • ​​Help them choose age-appropriate books:-Help your kids choose age-appropriate books on topics that interest them to spark a passion for reading. Take them to the library or even show them e-readers that provide entire libraries of options at the touch of the screen. Access to a wide-variety of options helps make it easier for parents to help their children find the stories that give them that toehold into the world of reading.
  • Surround your children with reading material:-Children with a large collection of reading resources in their homes score higher and perform better on standardized tests. Provoke a reading habit in your child by having a large array of interesting books and magazines at her reading level.
  • Show interest in your child’s reading:-Your response or feedback has a strong effect on how hard they will try to become good readers. Always remember to give them genuine praise for their efforts.
