Keep Your Teenager Reading!

10 Tips For Parents

slide3

1. Set an Example.

Let your kids see YOU reading.

slide4
Keep plenty of books, magazines, newspapers and catalogs on hand to encourage random acts of reading.

2. Make sure there’s something to read.

slide5
Comment on something you’ve read in the paper, or leave it lying open on the breakfast table and ask your teen’s opinion on a topic.

3. Share your reading.

slide6
Young Adult novels can provide insight into the pressures and problems of teenagers. They might provide a great starting point for a difficult discussion.

4. Read a book written for teens.

slide7
When at the library or bookstore, allow your teen to go their own way and make independent selections. A gift certificate allows them to make decisions about what they buy.

5. Give teens a chance to choose.

slide8
Acknowledge the fact that your teen is growing up - suggest some adult novels you think they can handle.

6. Recognize your teen’s mature interests.

slide9
Look for books, magazines, and newspaper articles that cover your teen’s favorite sports team or music group.

7. Build on hobbies and interests.

slide10
Boys, especially when they hit middle school, show a strong preference for non-fiction. It’s okay if they don’t like the latest novel -- try a biography or magazine.

8. Let boys read like boys.

slide11
Make sure your teen knows it’s okay to read frivolous things for pleasure. Let them know it’s okay to skip parts of a book or leave it unfinished if it gets boring (unless it’s for school!).

9. Lighten up.

slide12
Teens go through phases. If your teen ignores books, don’t stress too much. They’ll likely return to it at some point.

10. Keep trying.
