How to Encourage Reading and Learning

Most people want their children to love learning and reading. Most want their children to be better educated. Better education means better quality of life in most cases and who doesn’t want their child to succeed in life?

But do you know what to do and how to encourage that love of learning and more specifically reading in your kids?

Author and teacher LeAnn Miller believes parents are the key to a child’s success in school. A parents’ encouragement is vital to the confidence and determination they will need to expend efforts to learn. Encouraging parents raise kids who want to learn and excel in and out of the classroom.

“Give children encouragement, they will gain confidence, they will perform better.” MK Soni

News analyst Bill O’Reilly writes in a June column (6/21/07) the number of kids who don’t know how to read or write and who grow up without parental involvement are staggering. “What kind of parent doesn't take his kid to the dentist or encourage the child to read? A bad parent, that's what kind. Millions of American parents are just terrible, routinely abusing and neglecting their children.”

There are simple inexpensive things that parents can do to encourage the love of learning in their children. As Anatole France says, “Nine tenths of education is encouragement.” Any parent can learn to do this!
