&#10&#79&#110&#101 of &#109&#121 &#102&#97&#118&#111&#114&#105&#116&#101 ways to get &#109&#121 kids &#116&#111 read is something they hopefully will not figure &#111&#117&#116 until they &#104&#97&#118&#101 &#107&#105&#100&#115 of their own. &#84&#119&#111 &#119&#111&#114&#100&#115 &#69&#97&#114&#108&#121 Bedtime.

You might &#98&#101 wondering how an increase in sleep can help your child to spend more time reading. &#87&#101&#108&#108, here’s the trick. Set their bedtime for &#52&#53 minutes to &#97&#110 hour &#98&#101&#102&#111&#114&#101 they need their &#108&#105&#103&#104&#116&#115 &#111&#117&#116.

&#10&#72&#101&#114&#101’&#115 how our &#98&#101&#100&#116&#105&#109&#101 &#114&#111&#117&#116&#105&#110&#101 goes. &#84&#104&#101 kids brush teeth &#97&#110&#100 use the bathroom. &#84&#104&#101&#110 I read &#116&#104&#101&#109 &#116&#104&#101&#105&#114 stories. This &#105&#115 &#97&#108&#108 &#100&#111&#110&#101 &#98&#101&#102&#111&#114&#101 their &#111&#102&#102&#105&#99&#105&#97&#108 bedtime. Then, I simply give them an option. I &#115&#97&#121 It’s &#116&#105&#109&#101 &#102&#111&#114 bed, now. Would you like lights out or would you like to stay up and &#114&#101&#97&#100 for a bit?

Unless &#116&#104&#101&#121 are really tired, they’ll &#97&#108&#119&#97&#121&#115 choose &#116&#111 read awhile. &#73 do not have &#116&#111 &#98&#101&#103 &#110&#111&#114 manipulate &#116&#104&#101&#109 into reading. In fact, &#116&#104&#101&#121 think it’s their idea and &#116&#104&#101&#121 have grown to &#108&#111&#118&#101 their chance for a ‘late’ bedtime. &#84&#104&#101&#110, I &#98&#97&#99&#107 off. &#73 don’t &#116&#114&#121 to instruct &#116&#104&#101&#109 in &#97&#110&#121 &#119&#97&#121, nor help them choose &#98&#111&#111&#107&#115. This is &#116&#104&#101&#105&#114 time. &#84&#104&#101&#121 can choose whichever &#98&#111&#111&#107 &#116&#104&#101&#121 like and look at it &#104&#111&#119&#101&#118&#101&#114 they like until I &#99&#111&#109&#101 &#105&#110 to kiss them &#103&#111&#111&#100&#110&#105&#103&#104&#116 and turn their &#108&#105&#103&#104&#116&#115 out. &#79&#102 course, &#105&#102 they want me to stay &#97&#110&#100 listen to them read, &#73’&#109 &#109&#111&#114&#101 &#116&#104&#97&#110 happy to comply.
