Is this 8 week course for you?
Have you heard that reading to your child is beneficial but not been committed to it?
Have you struggled to get yourself into a reading routine with your child, and you feel like you’re letting them down?
Have you wondered how exactly will reading to your young child help them later on in life? Surely school does that…
You are not alone
According to Scholastic Australia’s Kids & Family Reading Report, 26% of parents started reading to their baby before they were 3 months old.
60% of parents started reading books aloud before their baby turned 1.
Many parents miss out on the valuable advice of reading aloud to their babies and young children regularly and consistently.
Of children aged 6 to 8 whose parents had stopped reading to them, 51% did not want their parents to stop. As you can see many parents have stopped reading aloud to their children once they’ve started school.
Yes, I need to read aloud to my child. How can I do this regularly?
As parents we lead busy lives. Many of us work full-time or part-time. Some of us are single parents. Some of us are grandparents caring for grandchildren. Throw in other daily life challenges and commitments like long term illnesses, disability, looking after family members, study, sports and all sort of others, and therefore we have to start prioritising.
