but I dont like to read...
Its soooooo hard to get my 9 year old to read. She claims she doesn't like to read.. However
1) she reads well she reads at least on grade level probably a few years above so the simple act of reading is not hard
2) she LOVES hearing books I read to her a lot she does books on tape a lot, all fine and good way to still expose her to good literature etc but reading is also good
3) EVERYTIME I have insisted that she read she has enjoyed it EVERY darn time, yet its still this constant battle..
Honestly I'm also convienced she has just decided it some "cool" thing to say she doesn't like to read.. Like she hears it from her friends then repeats it to me...
Still she needs to be reading gobs more than she does now I'm tired of the whinning and acting like I'm making her do some awful task. I dont really care what as long as its age appropiate. but all I get is how much how long and she will stall and whine and do as little as possible.
I can not spell and have no phone to blame things on.
