Parenting Tip: There are Benefits to Bedtime Stories

PTSY: Fall Children's Books Picks

 

After working all day long and trying to keep our evening routine, reading a book to the little ones AND making sure the oldest one reads a chapter is honestly the last thing I want to do.  I am ready to take a break, finally sit down and have several uninterrupted thoughts.  There are times bedtime curfew creeps up on us before we can get in a bedtime story.  But most of the time mama-guilt sets in. I remember the benefits of reading and try to make sure that our family is among the 78% of African Americans who read to their children three times a week  According to the 2013 America’s children: Key National Indicators of Well-Being in 2007  68% of Hispanics,  91% of Whites and 87% of Asian/Pacific Islanders did the same.
 

How many nights a week do you read to the kiddo’s?
