Read to your child

by: Marilyn Owen (23 October 2009)

If you have children, perhaps one of the finest gifts you can give them is the love of reading. This is something that they will be able to keep with them and use for the rest of their lives. It will educate, entertain and provide a continuous source of pleasure.

However, it cannot be denied that the pursuit of reading has given way to television viewing, video games and the Internet. Nevertheless, there are so many other forms of reading apart from books and this is evident from the mass of information available online, all requiring to be sorted and read at some stage!

The love of reading needs to be cultivated at an early stage in life so if you have children, do read to your child from babyhood. It doesn’t matter whether they understand the words you use – it’s like talking – this is how a child’s language is developed, by hearing it spoken, and in the case of reading, matching the sounds while pointing to the written word or the pictures in the book.

Have a variety of books around the house and enjoy that special time when you read to them, perhaps at bedtime or at any time when you feel like snuggling up. That way, reading and stories will be regarded as a pleasure throughout your child’s lifetime, whatever new technology has in store for them!

An error has occurred in script /home/writeit/public_html/config1.inc on line 9: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone.© WriteItClearly.com 2006–2022
