Parents who read will have kids who read.
What example are you setting for your kids?
Do you plop down in front of the television at the end of the day and zone out?
Do you mindlessly scroll through your phone?
We understand life is busy (boy, do we!) and a bit of mindless entertainment can be what's needed to let go of the day's troubles. However, there are numerous studies that show that taking the time to read to our kids before bed improves brain function.
Here's a quick list of benefits you can start to see:
1. One-on-one bonding time with your kid.
2. Establishing a night time routine. (Very important!)
3. Improvement in basic vocabulary.
4. Pattern recognition. (Many bedtime books focus on routine and patterns).
