Successful Home Education

Chapter 11 When to start

Our first child was only four years old when I decided to teach him basic letter and number recognition. I’ve always read stories to him every day right from when he was about eight months old. He loved books, the colourful bright pictures and the time spent on my lap. Reading aloud to your child is very beneficial, my husband and myself have done this to all our children, in fact we still do. Although they don’t sit on our laps anymore! Our youngest is nearly eleven but I read aloud to him almost every day. Of course I have him read aloud to me as well. Reading aloud will teach your child expression in reading. If you think that your voice is the most boring noise in the world, think again. Your child heard your voice before he was born and loved your voice. Besides, you can only get better, right!
