5 Tips To Engage Your Adolescent Children In Reading

Are you worried because your teenagers do not read or do not read regularly? Do not be sad. One of the biggest concerns of most parents is that they can not engage their children in reading. Although when they are little they usually enjoy literature, when they turn 12 or 13 many stop reading. One of the best strategies to get them to become addicted to this habit is to enjoy reading from a young age or try other formats such as audiobooks.

Young people feel it as an obligation. For example, for many high school students “reading is associated with compulsory reading books in the subject of language, usually literary works and on which they must perform work.

5 Tips for engaging kids in reading

The key for a child to acquire this habit is that the choice of the book is appropriate and the format is entertaining for him. It should foster interest, enthusiasm and, of course, a good plot will always captivate the most demanding.

1. Choose the appropriate format 

This habit after years of education has become an obligation rather than a pleasure. In addition, nowadays it must compete with other hobbies in leisure time such as extracurricular activities, the use of tablets or mobile phones.

The Storytel audiobooks allow you to acquire the benefits of reading as an enrichment of the vocabulary or the development of the capacity for concentration and comprehension. Another good idea is to go with them to the library or bookstore in your neighborhood or locality and let them choose the ones they like the most.

2. Respect their reading ability

Teens should find stories that interest them but are also adapted to their age. A twelve-year-old boy will hardly be able to read books designed for boys of 14 or 16 years old. Follow the instructions of publishers or librarians when looking for stories.

If they do not like it or do not understand it, they will surely leave it and this negative experience will discourage them when they start to enter other stories.

3. Find suitable books

Limit their screen time

 

 

 

 

To engage young people in reading, the works have to interest them from the cover. They should be attracted to a story that has some connection to their life. If they like sports or adventures, look for some related to these topics. 

It may also be a good idea to choose others to help you cope with life’s defining moments such as the loss of a loved one or anger with your best friend. We should not impose something that will not captivate them.

4. Do not prohibit readings 

Children always feel a great attraction about what their parents veto them. Prohibiting their reading is not usually a good decision because they will try to do it secretly. It is best to let them read ten pages and tell us what they have read.

5. Limit their screen time 

One big hurdle that hinders reading habit in young kids is increased screen time. You, as a parent have to take a toll over them and make appropriate schedules for them to balance all activities in life.

One good way of doing this is using the app to limit screen time such a FamilyTime that lets’ parents schedule auto screen locks on kids; devices and help them focus on other activities too.

Use these simple tips and get your kids engaged in reading effortlessly. Happy parenting!

Circus Roncalli in Germany Makes Use of 3D Holograms Instead of Real Animals

Can you imagine a circus without horses, elephants, lions, and tigers? Obviously not. Since ages, we have been making use of real animals as a means of entertainment which is actually not correct and a very cruel act towards the animals. In order to stop the animal abuse, a group of German performance group has started making use of 3D holograms instead of using the real animals completely.

Taking this noble step to show some love and courtesy towards animals, Circus Roncalli in Germany has become the first ever circus to entertain masses without dealing with live animals.

The public is appraising their efforts and respect their decision to end the cruelty against the animals.

Circus Roncalli which was founded in 1976 has phased out the use of animals and now they have started making use of projections to entertain the audience.

The circus has decided to transform the things entirely so that it could help and contribute towards fighting against the innocent animals that are getting tortured and ill-treated for so long in the industry.
