Develop a Family Reading Time
Set aside some time during the evening for reading. Just as you might make popcorn for your children to eat while watching television, do the same when they spread out on the carpet with whatever they have selected to read that evening. Be relaxed about what your children read and encourage all forms of reading that appeal to them. You should try to make the reading period a regularly scheduled event, one that your children will look forward to and one that will stimulate family discussions. Do not create a test situation by asking questions about the reading content. You should however, encourage conversations to share books of special interest to your children and help them find other books which may develop those interests.
