Children Reading Skills, an online blog site for parents, has released its new guide on why your child should read for 20 minutes a day. The guide comes in the form of a blog that was compiled by the site’s owner, David Smith.

The new blog aims at helping you prepare your children for future success, happiness, and fulfillment through the practice of reading. It features information on introducing reading to your child at an early age, tips on assisting your child with reading difficulties, methods that can be used to teach your child to read, and the benefits children can gain from reading.
The author opens by informing parents that the act of reading at a younger age, nurtures a child’s brain and improves their knowledge. He also adds that having your child read for 20 minutes each day can improve, and even perfect, that child’s reading abilities.
It is well known that not all children have the same level of reading skills and comprehension as others. Some learn at a fast rate due to heredity and practice, while for some it takes a longer time. Smith understands this and thus gives useful tips on what you as a parent or guardian can do to assist the latter class of children with reading.
Given that underlying health conditions can play a role in impeding a child’s reading skills, the guide encourages you to seek medical assistance for your child first. If it turns out that there’s no health issue then you are advised to meet with the child’s teacher and raise your concerns.
The guide then encourages you to participate more in your child’s studies by showing more interest and constantly urging that child to read. If you have children with learning disabilities you’re also advised to take them to special schools for assistance. These, coupled with hiring a private tutor the blog assures can improve a child’s reading.
Among the methods that the guide lists for teaching your child to read are reading to and questioning the child on what was read, using sight words, and using reading programs. The blog also encourages you to create an “identification” reading environment, which entails labeling items around the home.
According to Smith, having children practice 20 minutes of reading per day supports their cognitive development, develops their language skills, and creates opportunities for their academic success. This practice is also considered as a means of increasing their concentration.
