If you’ve got kids in the house, and you’re trying to find a way to get them to go out and watch a movie, this might not be the best idea.
For example, let’s say you’re a mom, and your kids are just starting out on the journey of learning to read.
You’ve got a few things you want them to know about reading, and there are some things you’d like them to do before they start reading, but they can’t go on their own.
You know, reading.
If you want your kids to do something, you want to know where they can find a teacher or something that will help them.
If that teacher has kids, you might want to find out how much they can read.
So you could say, I’ll help them read, but what about if I don’t?
That’s what I want to show them.
That’s how you teach kids, how you build their confidence and give them the confidence to read for themselves.
So I’ll get them out of bed in the morning and ask them a question about reading and the basics of how to read and what’s a book that they can really go out into the world and read.
Then, I can show them a few stories that they’ll read and then they can pick up the first book, and then we’ll go on.
And then they will go on to read the rest of the stories.
And I’ll also tell them that they need to be reading, because that’s what we’re doing.
So, if I say, you need to learn how to write, they’ll go, okay.
I’ve got to write.
I’m not good at writing.
I need to write some more.
So if I’m just going to help them get a book, I don, you know, you can’t just be a parent and help them learn how do this.
You need to help the kids learn.
So that’s how I teach.
If I’m out there teaching, I’m going to tell them, I need them to have a plan, and I’m really going to get into it.
And if I just let them just be curious, I’ve been a mom for so long, I know that it takes a while for kids to actually figure things out.
So what I say to parents is, I think they need a plan.
I know I do, but if you don’t have a good plan, they’re not going to learn.
I’m not a fan of this whole thing of, well, I want my kids to learn, but I want them doing it on their terms, and they can do it on the terms that they want.
So there’s a lot of things that I would do differently.
I’d teach them how to do things.
I would try to teach them the right things at the right time.
So this is my way of teaching, and it’s my way, it’s just my way.
But you know what?
If you can make it happen, then that’s great.
If it’s not working for you, then don’t do it.
But the other thing I would say is, you don.
If you’re really trying to figure out what you want, then you might think that the only way you can get your kids interested in reading is by telling them all these stories, and if that works for you and you think that you’ve worked that out, then fine.
But if you’ve not, then I can’t help you, because I can never tell them what they want to hear.
You know what I mean?
I don’t think that’s a good thing.
I think that it just doesn’t work.
So the other advice is, it might be better for you if you just don’t.
I mean, I wouldn’t tell my kids what they should or shouldn’t read.
I can do that for myself, I guess.
Do you have kids?
What are you doing now?
I am doing a podcast called You Are Not Alone, and this is the show that we’re going to be talking about this week.
I hope you enjoy it.
Thank you so much.
