We parents should teach our children good reading habits. Meaning, we should encourage them to be come a wide reader. From simple ABCs to textbooks, kids should be taught about the value of reading.
If a child learns how to read in an early age, like preschool age, he/she has the big advantage to learning fast in school. Comprehension will be easy that will lead to becoming a smart kid. That is why reading to your children when they are young is highly recommended. One of the best ways to get your kids interested with books is to take them to the library at least once a week. This way, they can can explore the library where tons of educational books can be borrowed. A very good routine has to be followed at home to maintain the interest.
As for me, I learned that babies develop their hearing first in the mother’s womb. So it’s recommended to read storybooks to the babies whenever moms get the chance. It is really amazing how they already recognize the mother and the father’s voices.
I started taking my baby girl to the library when she was an infant. There’s a public library in town where kids’ activity like Toddler Story Time really helps young children interact and get interested in reading books. My daughter loves going to the Story Time at the library. She always look forward to Fridays.
I think that in everything we do, it takes a lot of patience especially when it comes to child’s learning. And if we do it with love and care, we’ll raise a happy smart child.
