How to Foster a Love of Reading


One of the best ways to get your child to love reading is by modeling the behavior yourself.


This goes beyond reading a book to your child nightly (which is a beautiful bonding experience and also fosters a love of reading); your child should see you relaxing with a book.


“But I don’t have any time to relax with a book while their awake!”

Aha! That’s the bigger focus.


Your child should see you relaxing *in general.*


Modeling how to take time to sit and relax, enjoy a book, listen to music, or participate in a hobby is beneficial for your child (and beneficial for your health, obviously!). Have your child join you. They might get squirrely and bored, but boredom never killed anyone.


This time will help your child learn how to relax, find activities that are calming to them, and reduce dependency on TV or electronics to “wind down.” (I know I use TV way too often to wind down!)


If you can’t stop thinking about the never-ending To-Do list, add a designated reading time to it. (Then rejoice when you get to check it off.)


The more your child sees you doing an activity, the more interested they will become in doing the activity themselves. Reading included!
