Reading is a wonderful activity that boosts your children's imagination, increases their vocabulary and enhances their cognitive skills, which means better job opportunities and overall it increases their chances in life. For this reason at The Tutoring Center in Lake Forest, we would like to share some useful advice to engage your children in reading. 

Reading Material

The first step is relatively simple and you can’t force your children to read those books that you find amusing, instead you should allow them to follow their interests. You can visit your local library and book store; keep in mind that finding a genre that compels your children is a trial and error process, so you should be patient and support them. Also, you can also ask the librarian for recommendation, if you don’t know where to start. 

Become a Role Model

Make sure that your children see you reading a book in front of them, this way it’s likely that this will trigger their curiosity and encourage them to mimic your behavior. Reading together is also a good idea to introduce certain key elements of storytelling. Giving books as gifts is also a great way to engage your children in reading.  Last but not least, don’t forget to praise and reward their efforts. 

Create a Reading Space

Having the right reading environment at home can also motivate your children to grab a book. Remember that the room temperature should be cool, otherwise a stuffy room make your children sleepy. The reading position is also crucial, as the wrong position can lead to fatigue or put your children to sleep.

The importance and benefits of reading can’t be overstated, keep in mind that literacy is learned and these simple ideas are a big step towards instilling this skill in your children. Also, be sure to read this previous post containing helpful ideas to help your children when they are stuck on homework.
