I grew up with no television and we still don’t have one. We read. We loved reading…but every one of my siblings and I had trouble learning to read. None of us could read before Grade 2 and some took longer than that. We were all determined though, because we were read to and we loved it. To be honest, I think one of the main reasons I’m home schooling my kids is so I can have time to read all the classic children’s books. Read to your kids, read alone, enjoy reading and your kids will enjoy it also. If you’re like me and get addicted to the detriment of your family, try audio books or more difficult books. I rarely read novels now because I don’t like what happens when I get absorbed. I try to read aloud to my kids from a chapter book every day. Make time for the great family moments!
