One thing that really struck me from parent’s evening yesterday. Our kid reads. A LOT. He devours books. And teacher said something like “it all starts with reading”.

Read with your small children. It doesn’t matter what. Comics, picture books, newspapers, novels. Enjoy reading!

@ross My wife and I are big readers as is our 6yo son. Our 12yo son isn't much of a reader though. Despite numerous attempts to get him to read, he just doesn't take to it. We're still persisting though in the hopes that he will eventually take to it.

@matthewlang Yeah, I think there's something genetic/innate too. And it must be hard if he's not so interested. But you set the example and gave the opportunity! 🙌
