Reading without hobby or Why the child does not want to read?

Many modern parents with grief note that their children will not start on the book not for all the tea in China...

the Son asks the father:
- the Father, and for how many you will be able
to read “War and peace“?
the Father answers:
- I Think, dollars for hundred, the sonny...
the boy`s father not too essentially approached

In that joke a question. Many modern parents with grief note that their children will not start on the book not for all the tea in China.

not reading child causes feeling of alarm in those who love it. Not casually in the head of relatives terrible pictures are drawn: did not accept to study in a gymnasium, lags behind peers, did not enter to the UNIVERSITY, did not receive prestigious specialty and so forth.

for the sake of should noticing

of Optimism that, growing, many not reading children are in the lead in business and well build up the relationship with people around. Unless successful philologists not to become them.

However, wise parents understand that put not only in success. You remember how we greedy “swallowed“ of krapivinsky short stories, hiding with a small lamp under a blanket? Mother did not resolve because time passed after midnight. But unless it was possible to stop? And now our child for some reason loses such pleasure.

Well and of course, man cannot live by bread alone... Let`s not repeat stamps about “a treasury of world spirit...“ and so forth

What provokes the child to dislike or the indifferent relation to reading?

not reading parents. And not simply not reading, and neglecting books. If the kid since the birth sees a back of the father who buried in the computer monitor, and mother who is laid over by Lisa magazines - psychologists and teachers claim that to impart his love to the book will be problematic. Do not think that if you with enthusiasm read a ladies` forum, the child will be smitten with love for Nekrasov.

Incorrect way of training in reading. If not to go into methodical details, I can warn responsible parents against letter by letter training of the child in reading only. You remember, at elementary school alphabet letters learned to call us correctly?“ “, “Ale“, “Em“, “En“ etc. Mother was an honors pupil and remembers from a school bench that there is no letter “Re“, and there is a letter “Ayr“. And diligently to teach the kid to call letters by name. And then is perplexed why the child cannot learn the word, having read “EM... And... EM... And“. Mother is nervous, the child with anger flings away the book. The alphabet with pictures gets to the same category (“M“ - the car and pr). Such alphabet is potentially dangerous to the kid with thin hearing. In particular, the letter “M“ can designate two sounds [m] (firm) and [m`] (soft). Having got used to associate the letter “m“ with “car“ (where a sound [m] firm), the child can stumble on reading the word “ball“ (where a sound [m] soft).

Restrain for a while the noble ardor and read bases of techniques of training in reading. Surely find material where not only advantages, but also method shortcomings are described. Also you will choose what suits your child and... to liking to you. Mother has to be engaged with pleasure too! The most effective techniques - on “warehouses“ (Zaytsev`s cubes) and a method of the whole words (G. Doman).

How to achieve that the child felt pleasure and pleasure from reading?
rejoice to progress of the child More, you do not stint a praise and tenderness - to the kid your support in this hard business is very important.

Incorrect choice of the book. Today I had pleasure to get acquainted with the book intended for “first reading“. Words were broken there into syllables (at me in a minute zaryabit in eyes from hyphens). Besides, words visually seemed longer (more terribly), than they are. But the most important is a selection of lexicon. How you think whether for a long time there will be enough four - / a five-years period if the first book abounds, for example, epithets “vos - hi - ti - a tel - ny“ and “pe - re - pon - cha - ty“? Unfortunately, store regiments dazzle with doubtful masterpieces of children`s literature now.

Violence. Do not persuade and the more so do not force the child to read if he wants to play this moment with the railroad. Do not allow the angry and angry intonations. Do not abuse the child for mistakes. If there is too much them, constrain the pedagogical heat and do not correct everyone.

Reading has to be associated with pleasure!

Treat responsibly the choice of the book

Is good

if in it large letters and bright pictures. But not only it is important. If work is not familiar to you, be not too lazy to read several lines (it is desirable aloud). - all this I met a heavy rhythm, carelessly picked up rhymes, absence of dynamics in a plot in books for the two-year-old kid. If your child is more senior, then the principle in most cases works: if it is interesting to read to mother, then it will be interesting also to the child. I still with the great pleasure re-read a story about Winnie - Down.

Create books!

This idea is offered by Cecil Loupan, the author of the remarkable book about early development of the child “Believe in the child“. If the camera always with you, make several bright pictures of your kid in various situations (not portraits). Paste photos in an album and think up according to them a story about your child with a dynamic plot. Write down it large letters. Read together with the child - he will be delighted

For children is more senior which are able to put letters and syllables in words, but read with a reluctance, there are very interesting councils from the candidate of psychological sciences Yurkevich Victoria Solomonovna. She offers simple and bright methods (it is quoted on its work “That the child liked to read...“ ).

Kassil`s Method

Is chosen the most interesting text with a bright plot and the parent reads to it, suddenly stopping on the most interesting place, and then the father (mothers, at all house) categorically any more has no time for reading to the child. The child without special enthusiasm starts on the book, in hope that someone will take pity, and will read to it, all killed - or not the main character. House right there praise highly the child for desire to read, and read with it together - a line you, two lines I. And so on.

the Spark Method Daunis (the children`s psychologist)

Once the child wakes up and finds under a pillow the letter from Carlson where he in only two large lines tells him that he wants to be on friendly terms with it, and the gift for it is there - and there-. The next morning one more letter where already about a gift words, and it is said that it wanted to leave it tickets in circus, but saw how it pulled a cat a tail, and she squealed. And therefore tickets in circus are postponed. Every day of the letter is longer, and are read quicker.

the Method of the ancient people (which still call the Book People)


to the Child is allowed to read, only when he behaves well, and in an award not only give the chance to read several lines (or even half-pages), but even bake special cookies in the form of a book which the child receives in commemoration of the joyful moment. Reading - pleasure and a holiday. And it is the child has to know every time when starts on the book. If the child behaves badly, the book cannot be read. This method when children began to read the Book (the sacred book) was born...“


to the child and together with the child!

If you think that, reading to the child, you fight off it requirement to read most, you are mistaken. Read daily. Researches showed what parents read to well reading children about an hour a week, that is for 10 minutes a day. Read with expression, imitate voices of characters, laugh with the kid, and, above all, you speak with the child about read. Stop and ask the child to guess what occurred further. Draw together illustrations to the book, think out continuations of history, discuss acts of heroes. But do not turn discussion into boring notations: “Why Mashenka was lost? Because did not listen to the grandmother with the grandfather. Here you, Slavochka, did not obey today mother with the father too and therefore...“.

All our recommendations can be reduced to three words: be patient, positive and thoughtful. Listen to the child and yourself. Choose what will suit your kid.
