Day 257: Reading to Your Child

One way to create a rich language environment is to read out loud to your child every day from good children’s literature. Ask your librarian for age-appropriate recommendations. Set aside specific time to read.  Many families incorporate story time into their child’s bedtime ritual.

Turn off the TV and allow at least an hour to just read and enjoy stories together. Parents can trade off story-time obligations, but do consider it an obligation. It’s your job, your responsibilty, your “sacred duty” to read to your child. The benefits in terms of your child’s intellectual growth alone are enormous.

Don’t forget about the upcoming “Unschool Your Teen” seminar!  This is your opportunity to participate in an informative event and learn all you need to get your teen unschooled.  Held in Palo Alto, CA, on Oct. 2.  Click here to register:
