For me this brings back memories of a difficult relationship that I have had with reading and writing; if my teachers at school realised that now I write for a living I think they would be shocked, it was something I loved but found hard. I could read but never found that connection.
As a child I wanted so desperately to write, it wasn’t till I found the murder mystery books that I was able to really understood what I wanted from life, shame it took so long for me to express those thoughts and feelings.
It is important that you are able to make time for reading; there is so much information that is instantly accessible because of the internet, that if you are looking for inspiration as what to read you won’t be disappointed.
Get Help If You Struggle With Reading
If you have problems with reading or your child is not progressing with their reading skills, ask for help.
I was very lucky with two of my children. They had no problems reading and learning the concept of how to read.
However, one of my children didn’t find this skill easy and struggled, I continued on thinking that the teachers knew what they were doing and then one day I asked if they thought she was dyslexic.
The shock I got in answer was ‘what is that?’ It then made me realise that my daughter needed more help and I pushed through independently of the school.
I managed to find a specialist who would come into the school to help. I got the help my child needed but I had left it too long believing in the school system; I do wish I had asked those questions sooner.
But the important lesson I learned was to make sure I was asking the right questions for my children and that I was taking positive steps to ensure they were getting the best resources to learn.
The Written Word Hasn’t Changed
It is important to see that while the book industry is changing, there are more opportunities where skills in reading are even more important than ever.
Making time to read is an important aspect of taking your mind to a new place, whether it is learning or enjoyment, reading is a pleasure that is taking pride of place in social media and technology in the current world we are living.
Whilst there is still a need to read, less so with teaching and practising handwriting skills, that is a different matter entirely!
