Eight Reasons Why Your Kid Dislikes to Read

Are you distressed by your kid’s lack of interest in reading? You might have a young child just learning how to read. You’re trying to encourage learning by reading together. However, every reading activity is a struggle. Your child is shunning it just like a hated vegetable. Or perhaps your kid can read, but he does not want to. They even say in your eyes, “I hate to read!”

How did this come about? Why doesn’t your child like to read? It comes down to one thing: the passion for reading has never been igniting or extinguished. Here are eight ways to destroy a child’s love for reading:

1. Reading sessions are like drilling training. 

Don’t quiz and test your kids when reading. It was fine to point these things out and ask any questions to promote thinking, but make sure that fun must stay there. Don’t turn this into a pressurized class activity. Yeah, you’re hoping they will gain more from reading, but don’t make it your primary target. Please read it to enjoy the plot. Learning usually occurs when teaching is not so obvious.

2. TV, video and videogames.

Take the stage once it comes to entertainment and relaxation. They strongly distract kids from reading. These activities need to be limited if you would like to persuade them that books can also be entertaining.

3. Reading a book which is too hard to read. 

It isn’t very encouraging for kids to read a book but not learn how to read a lot of words. Where is the joy when you’re struggling to get over a page? Learn your kid’s ability to read and get books that suit their stage.

4. Reading activities transforms into screaming and putting down sessions. 

Parents may need to hold their children to realistic expectations—Control emotions when kids don’t excel as quickly as you wish. Watch your tongue and avoid degrading remarks such as, “Can’t you understand that word, we already read it,” or, ” I’ve already told you many times. what is wrong with you?”

5. Reading a book which is not in any interest to your children. 

How are kids looking at these books? Uninteresting. To a young boy, reading a dinosaur book could be more entertaining than reading books about Dick and Jane. Push the teens to read books which they can connect to it. I know that when I was that age, I like a book game about love, romance, and friendship. Focus on your child’s passions and desires.

6. Required to teach. 

For older students, homework is often performed in the form of assigned readings. Usually, the report must be submitted. Even though this has been done with right motivations, it is easy for a kid to see reading as a chore. It is therefore very likely that the given reading is not one of their preference and thus not to their taste. Reading within that condition is like dragging your legs in the mud.

7. The pressure of peers. 

That is another aspect impacting older children. Kids can be cruel to their teasing and branding. Usually, the term “nerds” and “geeks” is thrown at those who find pleasure in books. Your child might well choose to shun books to blend in and be one of the “good kids.”

8. Limiting what the kids are reading. 

Imagine if you enjoyed science-fiction books, but you were told that you could only read the classics. What kind of a damper would be appropriate for you? Open up to what your kid wants to read. You might think your kid has gone beyond photo books, but he still needs it. Let him do it. Or you might think that reading comic books has less educational value than reading well-known novels. Remember, it’s still a book in their hands. And, be it fantasy, non-fiction, storybooks, comic books, comics, etc., please be supportive!

You wish your child to read, then you need to prove first that it’s fun and exciting. Do not even push too hard to have your child to learn to read or to learn to read.
