A few weeks ago I wrote about the importance of maintaining bedtime because I am obsessed with sleep. (But in reality, aren't most parents obsessed with sleep?) Then I was reminded that my amazing Mother reads my blog. She texted me to say it would be a good idea to extend my son's bedtime if he spends the last half-hour of it reading.

My son is a reader already, so I am one of those lucky parents who doesn't need to encourage her child to read more...but I still encourage him to read more.

In other words: My Mother is right. As usual.

To provide additional validation (she knows how much I love studies), she sent me this article around practical advice parents can use to help raise a reader. Personally, I am in love with the first tip that mentions you need to re-discover your own love of reading to help foster it in others.

My son is getting a little older and his camp and school start later in the morning than my school started when I was his age. Could he stay up that last half-hour of his day and read? I am sure it is worth the try to see how it goes. Thanks, Mom!

How do you fit more time for reading into your child's day? Tell me in the comments.
