If you have small children, do you take them regularly to your local library? If not, then do it now, and make it a habit. Let them choose their own books, and take your pick at a few. Let them sit in the reading corner for a while before going home, to give them a positive experience. Read to them for a while each night; you can't get a better ending of the day. In addition, it strengthens the bond between you, because reading brings out their innermost thoughts and reflections and then you can discuss this after reading. There are so many benefits to this. For example, it helps your child to be calm and facilitates the process of learning how to read.
