Make Reading Part of Your Routine
When it comes to helping your kids expand their minds, there is nothing better than encouraging them to read. It helps them build their reading comprehension skills and could allow them to learn something new along the way. If you have small children and reading a story isn’t already a part of their nightly routine, make it one. Have them read to you instead of the other way around. If you have older kids who want to spend their entire summer staring at a screen, make it a rule that they have to read from an actual book in order to earn screen time.
There are all sorts of other reading opportunities, too. Pick up a new board game for family game night and have your kids read the rules and instructions to learn how to play. Set up a scavenger hunt with written clues. Create your own family book club where everyone reads the same book and discusses it. The options are limitless.
