Booklovers Are Sharing the Sneaky Tricks Their Parents Used to Encourage Them to Read More as Children

Instilling a love of reading into children is difficult these days – there are so many distractions! But it is a skill that both teachers and parents want to encourage. Finding enjoyment in reading doesn’t always come naturally, as most of us will understand.

Booklovers have taken to Twitter to share all the sneaky hacks their parents used to encourage them as children to read. Kind of like hiding extra veggies in their bolognaise, but you know, with books.

It all began when Professor Robert McNees shared a lovely post with his Twitter followers about how he got his 8-year-old daughter reading. Little does the child know, this is all part of her father’s masterplan.

Before too long, others shared stories of their own parents quietly encouraging them to read without them realising it.

 

Did your parents do anything like this with you when you were a child? Will you try this on your children?
