Help Your Child Reap the Benefits Which Reading Can Provide

There's no denying that reading is a great educational tool with a never-ending list of benefits which include boosting vocabulary, helping learn sentence structure and growing a child's imagination. The challenge faced by many parents, however, is convincing their child that reading doesn't have to be solely school based. If you are looking for easy to follow tips to help raise your child's interest in reading, The Tutoring Center, Columbus has just the post for you.

Lead by Example

If your children see you sitting in front of the television in your spare time, they are likely to follow suit. The next time that you are considering watching television, get out a book and read it where they can see you. When asked about what you're doing, respond excitedly and offer to buy them a book of their choosing to join you.

What to Choose?

When many parents attempt to increase their child's interest in reading they often use books recommended by teachers which are aligned with the curriculum. While these books are important for their formal education, when it comes to social reading, it's best to let your child choose. Along with your child, visit a local bookstore and help them to find books relating to their personal interests. If they are interested in sports, help them to find a book written by a famous sports star instead of just a story revolving around sports. This can be a great way to increase their exposure to formal styles of writing while staying within their interests.

Join Them

Once they have chosen their book, get two copies and read along with them. After each chapter, take some time to enjoy a treat together and discuss what has happened in the book. Becoming involved in their interests along with reading is a great way to show encouragement and can make for a great parent/child connection.
