Reading to your kids is important. It creates valuable bonding time between you and your little ones, and helps encourage them to read later on in life. But in the age of technology, it’s possible the classic things, like bedtime stories or rainy day cuddles, are being forgotten. Here’s why you shouldn’t forget to read to your kids, and why that quality time between you is actually quite important.
The more time you spend with your child, reading out loud to them and encouraging them to try new words and more complex sentences, the more likely it is that they will develop positive feelings towards reading out loud to you and reading book quietly to themselves. This will help later on in life, when they want to relax or de-stress and decide to turn to a book for comfort and pleasant associations. Moreover, reading out loud is “a proven technique to help children cope during times of stress or tragedy.”
