How to Raise a Non-Reader

I found this today and knew I had to share it with everyone I know and even those I don't know. There is so much truth in everything said here. I hope that this makes you think about what you are doing with your own kids/grandkids at home.

Thirteen Ways to Raise a Non reader


1.Never read where your children

can see you.

2.Put a TV or computer in

every room. Don’t neglect the bedrooms

and kitchen.

3.Correct your child every time she mispronounces a word.

4.Schedule activities every

day after school so your child will never be bored.

5.Once your child can read independently, throw out the picture books. They’re for babies.

6.Don’t play board games together.Too dull.

7.Give little rewards for reading.Stickers and plastic toys are nice. Money is even better.

8. Don’t expect your children to enjoy reading. Kids’ books are for teaching vocabulary, proper study habits, and good morals.

9.Buy only 40-watt bulbs for your lamps.

10.Under no circumstances read your child the same book over and over. She heard it once, she should remember it.

11.Never allow your child to listen to

books on tape; that’s cheating.

12. Make sure your kids only read books that

are “challenging.” Easy books are a

complete waste of time. That

goes double for comic books and Mad


13.Absolutely, positively

no reading in bed.

I can see why I became a voracious reader, my parents didn't follow any of these suggestions. I am not using any of these methods with my children either. Please pass this on to others, so we can raise a world full of readers.

  1. LOL. No reading in bed? I can't imagine bed without reading, and neither can my kiddos!
