Subject:  I read
I have been reading to my daughter since she was a baby. Later on, we got her picture books so that she could look at the pictures while we read to her. Little by little, she started to read on her own. Today, she has just started school and is an avid reader of whatever she can get her hands on. And I am very confident that she will be a better writer if she is reading so much in this age. I really thank god for imbibing this good habit in her. I will always love to give more and more books to her so that she is completely involved in reading and busy in her own world.

I have tried to get my child to take up reading but it is not working. Every day, she only wants to see the television. From morning to night, she sits in front of the TV. If I give her a book, she does not even want to look at it. I am really fed up with trying to make her read. I do not know what to do with her habit. I think last option is to just remove the cable connection. I really repent for starting this cable service in my house. I do not know how to stop my child from watching TV.

I think parent' s involvement is the most important part of getting children to read. Children learn by example. If they see the parents reading, they will also be tempted to read as well. How can you expect children to take an interest in reading if their parents watch TV? Parents should behave in the way which they expect from their children. Children follow only what parents do and not others. So, I think it is most important for parents to start reading in front of their children to so that children also read.

RE:Reading Newspapers
How old is your kid as it depends on the age of the child and one cannot force a five year old to read the newspaper so if your child is above ten years then yes you should ask him or her to read the newspaper daily.... - Aditi [View Message]
RE:Reading Newspapers
I think you should not force a child to read a newspaper as this is not necessary at all and one must avoid it so please do not force your child and make sure you let enjoy your child in what he is happy in doing.... - Anju [View Message]
