Habit 5: Read Every Day

Developing strong reading skills is an essential component of your child’s success in school now, and at work later in life.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, reading helps build a child’s self-esteem, relationships with parents and others, and success in later life.

It’s recommended you make reading a part of your child’s playtime and bedtime routines.

The Cleveland Clinic also suggests that daily reading to children can begin as early as 6 months of age.

Choose books your kids like so that they view reading as a treat rather than a chore.
