Episode 106: Get Your Child to WANT to Read with Dr. Colleen Carroll
We know reading to our kids is important. And we also want them to learn to enjoy reading on their own. And why not? After all, reading is the single biggest predictor of future success. And we all want our children to go on to great things. But there’s a problem.
In today’s world, distractions are commonplace in most modern homes. Technology devices and gadgets are the go-to for the majority of kids when they get home from school. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
What if our kids actually enjoyed reading? What if they willingly put down the iPad to pick up a *gasp* physical book? Do you think they would benefit from that action over time. Absolutely they would. Today’s guest Dr. Colleen Carroll tells us how we can inspire a love of reading in our own children in no time.
