How Did You Get Your Kids to Love Reading?

My boys LOVE reading. They go through books at such a rapid pace. Thankfully, I have a couple of things working for me. One, they will read the same books multiple times. Two, they will read each other’s books.

The “Love to Read” campaign began when my boys were about 6 & 8 they liked reading. However, it wasn’t something they would ever choose to do if they had free time. I didn’t want to bribe them, or pay them to read because that had the wrong motivation that I wouldn’t be able to continue long term. That’s when I remembered a tip I had filed away.

The tip was one I learned from a friend in high school. He shared that he was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was younger and didn’t really like reading. His parents, in an effort to persuade him otherwise, allowed him to stay up as late as he wanted, as long as he was reading. Well, it worked.

The details of how we implemented it in our house can be found here.

If you try this in your house, I’d love to hear about it!
