The Importance of Reading to Your Children
The importance of reading to your children
Many people do not understand the significance of reading to their children. Statistics have shown that children who have been read to from a very early age have picked up language skills faster than those who have not been read to at all. It is not only very important for your child's linguistic development, it is also excellent for hand eye coordination, and visual stimulation. Children love to hear the sound of their parents voices so it is never too early to start reading to your children.
I started reading to my son when he was first born. I remember a friend of mine telling me that it was pointless and that I should not read to him because he does not understand what I am saying. However, I knew that reading to him at such an early age would improve his language skills, and would eventually make him smarter. It would also provide him with an early interest in books. Because a lot of children are not interested in books and all they want to do is watch TV or play with toys that might not be teaching the anything. However, the more you read to your children the smarter they will become.
Stop Making Excuses
One of the most common excuses I hear from parents is that they cannot afford to buy their children books. Well, there is no real excuse for that because there are several options open to you. You can go to the library and borrow books for free, check out some thrift stores there are plenty of books available for sale for very little money. You can also download free books from the Internet or just simply read books straight from the Internet to your child.
