Hi Stacey, your forceful argument hit a nerve with me. Of 3 boys I have one son who was definitely not a reader – he loved me reading to him and loved talking about the books we read, but reading alone just didn’t come naturally to him. Now he’s at uni doing primary teaching and has to write about his own learning experiences – when he asked me to read his assignment on reading it made me cry. He loves to read but had struggled with it and is only just now finding his way, aged 19. It’s never too late! Just keeping the reading environment positive as a parent is the most important thing. There’s enough pressure on our kids to “perform” in every aspect of what they do these days. Let’s keep reading fun. Thanks for your reflection, I loved it!
