Becoming a good reader is the most important thing you can give your child!
I strongly believe what is stated above and equally strongly believe that parents can do it. The resources available here are designed to help parents make it happen.
I've been lucky over the years to learn many things that have been helpful in making my children very successful readers and for the two older ones (in college now), it has really paid off. And the same thing is true for my young one, who is currently in 2nd grade and doing great!
Teaching Your Child to Read
Teaching your child to read is one of the most rewarding experiences you can have with your child. It is great for both you and for your child. I've done it with all three of my children and have never regretted it. There has never been a doubt in my mind that learning to read early and well has been instrumental in their success in school.
For multiple reasons, I created an online course at Udemy which parents can use to teach their children to read much the same way I taught my children to read. Go to the web site below to learn more about the course or watch the promo video to the right.
Most people can agree that too much time is spent on our phones. This is true of both youth and adults.
If you are a parent that believes your child is on the phone too much, I recommend you start requiring at least 30 minutes of reading a day. That is what I did with my daughter. She is a great reader and enjoys reading, but it isn't a priority to her. I enforced it by requiring she track her reading time online. I'm making that tracker available to all at the links below.
If you are an adult that is concerned you are on your phone too much, you can start tracking your reading too. That is what I did. I was spending way too much time on social media. Now I'm very much enjoying reading The Orphan Master's Son. Instead of just reading 30 minutes, though, I often read well past that. Next I have to get the rest of my family signed up. Would love to see you there as well!
