Encourage reading

Encourage your children to read – by setting the example in your own life, by providing the opportunity (have books in the house, join a local library, download books, etc) and by directly supporting them as they learn to read.

  • Even when they are babies, read aloud to them
  • As children learn to read, help them sound out words and practise reading
  • Reading a bedtime story together is a great way for dads to spend time with their children every day – make it a habit!
