How to Increase Your Child's Reading Level

BY ARI FERTEL

Does your child read for fun every night?

If you’re like most parents, you answered “No.”

By middle school, most kids stop reading altogether, unless of course, it’s required for school, and even then many kids find a work-around.

The few children who do read for fun are usually the best academically. In fact, a child’s reading ability is the best predictor of academic success.

Unfortunately, most children don’t read well. According to the 2013 National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), 66% of fourth graders scored “below proficient” on the reading test. Only 36% of eighth graders read at or above grade-level.

Despite decades of effort, reading test scores have not improved. According to the 2012 Nation’s Report Card, reading scores for 17-year-olds have remained stagnant since the 1970s.

For years, parents have been given the same advice:

These are fine suggestions, if your child loves to read. But most kids do not like to read.

Let’s be honest—books are no match against today’s high tech devices. Children today are not into reading; they’re into technology.

When I practice reading with my 6-year-old, by the third sentence a sudden wave of exhaustion washes over her. She insists she can’t continue. “You read mommy.” One time I attributed her behavior to age. Another time I justified that we started too late in the evening.

But the truth came out when I created an account for her in Reading Buddy Software. All of a sudden she had the energy of a reading Olympian—and it was way past her bedtime. She plowed through repeated readings, word drills, and comprehension questions, all without breaking a sweat or moaning for a break. I was horrified, insulted, and excited!

With me my daughter read for 30 seconds. With Reading Buddy Software she reads for 30 minutes. That’s technology for you. Of course, when she earns enough points it costs me a sushi roll, but that’s the best $4.50 I ever spent.

When I got Reading Buddy Software for my son, it was like I got a 24/7 reading tutor. Better though, because I didn’t have to pay by the hour.
