Re: but I dont like to read...

To get my 9 year old to read more, I make him lie down at 8:30. The only thing he is allowed to do past that is read. He would rather read than sleep that early, so he reads about an hour each night. I did this after a friend suggested it and it works for him. He picks out what he reads and sometimes it is comics, but he is reading every day. I also consider being read to and audio books as part of reading and would be happy that she is listening to books. Listening helps children focus on reading comprehension and it is hard to do both read and comprehend what they are reading.
