If you are teaching your children so many things then also add “teach them reading habit” in your “to do list”. Reading habit is not only helpful for children but for the adults also. It helps you to improve your word stock and depth of knowledge. Books are the best to give you company when you are alone. Reading habits are most important for the children so that they don’t waste their leisure time by sleeping or doing any sort of unproductive activity.

To make your children good readers, you don’t need to plan specific times for them. Reading skills are not inborn traits in people but it can be improved by reading extensively. Here are some tips with which you can help your child to improve reading habit.

1. Try to read anything in front of your children, even if it is not related to their interest anyway.

2. Share information with your child while reading something.

3. Read aloud so that it reaches to your child’s ears.

4. Read the newspaper when your children are around.

Don’t limit them only to their textbooks, but also give them as much materials to read as they can.
