When it comes to all things in life, there’s nothing quite as effective as a good routine. Routines allow us to define structure in our lives, and when it comes to raising children, it can provide the very cornerstone for how they perceive the world around them. On that note, one routine that we highly recommend is that of reading to your child every night. Here’s why it can be one of the best things you can do for them.
Combining Love and Intellect
The coolest thing about being a parent is that you’re teaching them all kinds of things from an intellectual standpoint, but you’re also doing it with love. This is kind of the epitome of what it’s like to read to your child. From an intellectual standpoint, you’re teaching them about literature and exciting stories, while also exposing them to proper grammar and syntax. From a love standpoint, the very vocal delivery of your performance is an experience in and of itself.
Every word you read to your child is like music to their ears. You have no idea the kind of special impact this will have on them, and you may well shape a lifelong love of literature. Books are how we pass stories down from generation to generation. When you read to them, you’re giving over the stories themselves, but you’re also doing it with your own special flair. Your kids will never forget these special moments.
