Win Win Parenting – The Reluctant Reader: How to Inspire a Love of Reading in Your Child

Do you struggle to get your young children or teens to read? Would they rather be on some form of technology than sitting quietly reading a book? We all know how important it is for a child to enjoy reading not just in terms of their education but for so many reasons including for the sheer pleasure of it.

What about you? When you have spare time, do you love escaping reality with a good book enjoying the experience of the story unfolding with each turn of the page? And more importantly would you like that for your child?
