When I was her age I hated reading too. I was slow and I bet it wasn’t engaging enough when you’re just rereading the same bit over and over. In elementary school my best friend would read to me. We were required to take out a library book every week, and I took out the same one book for almost two years, until the librarian banned me from taking out that book.

I turned out fine, a good writer and reader. I know reading is important for development so as a mom you may worry. But I don’t think there’s anything my parents could have done.

Ooh one thing I do recommend- always keeping closed captioning on when watching TV.
