Television is part of our culture, and in many homes, it is always background noise. Although in some families, the time is chosen to watch television, and in others, they even establish schedules so that the children can enjoy it but without spending screen time either.
The books before sleeping
It does not matter if your child cannot read yet, that you read him a story or that you look at the images in children’s stories to comment on what is seen in them, it is also necessary for them. When they are older, reading before bed is a good idea because it will help them rest better, develop their mind and critical thinking, and expand their vocabulary, among many other benefits such as concentration or relaxation!
Knowledge does not take place.
Knowledge does not take place, and reading will always provide them with values and knowledge that they did not have before, and that will help them grow as people. They will be freer by having more knowledge about the world and by having more vocabulary thanks to those stories that allow their imagination to begin to grow. Children become great readers when, from a young age, they hold books on their parents’ laps.
The bad habit of television
It is true that many families gather in front of the television before going to bed, but think that your children’s childhood flies by and that no matter how tired you are, it is worth the effort. It is worth turning off the television and going to read a book with your children. If you’ve never done it before, don’t worry … You can start right now, and it’s never too late if happiness is good!
Reading as leisure
For reading to be leisure, it is as easy as giving children enough freedom to choose the readings that interest them the most in order to read. Listening to the reader and your reading ability … will open great doors in your life.
