The Law of the Harvest

(And What it Means for Your Child’s Reading)

BY ARI FERTEL

I’d like to share with you one of the keys to helping your child become a much stronger reader.

When a parent gets it in their head that they want their child to improve their reading skills, they go crazy trying to find the right tutor, program, or system.

Many people go online and search for THE answer. (That’s probably how you found me.) But finding a path for transforming your child’s reading skills is NOT like finding a solution to your home financing problem. You can’t just click, buy, and get instant gratification.

Today people are into quick fixes. But you can’t “microwave” this. Reading skills adhere to the law of the harvest.

What do I mean by that?

You know how a harvest works, don’t you? In the spring time you have to plant. Then you have to water, fertilize, and irrigate all summer long. There’s something else you have to do too…wait! You have to be patient. And then, after you complete every step of the process, you can harvest the crop.

We’re not used to revering a process. Most people look for short-cuts. Today everything is about efficiency. Efficiency works with machines, business, and finances. But efficiency will NOT work in the case of your child’s reading.

Transforming a child’s reading proficiency takes TIME. There are no short-cuts! You and your child will have to respect the process and be willing to take every step. It’s a 3-6 month process during which time your child has to do the following two things for a combined 30 minutes/day, at least 5 times/week:

  1. Participate in supervised reading that includes real-time corrective feedback.
  2. Listen to fluent reading.

Can you imagine goofing-off all spring and summer and then trying to harvest a crop in the fall? It’s impossible!

Achieving reading competency is like farming. If your child skips a step or doesn’t adhere to the process, they’ll short-circuit the process and slow themselves down. But if your child goes step-by-step…that’s the fastest way.

In the words of Stephen Covey, “Slow is fast and fast is slow.”

Make sure you set your child up with a step-by-step process. Make sure their reading protocol is clearly defined and that they have fresh engaging content every day. Make sure they’re not just reading, but that their reading is supervised and that they’re getting corrected when they make a mistake. Whatever they’re reading on a given day, make sure they hear that content read fluently to them. And, most importantly, do what you can to make sure your child is in for the long haul. In other words, make sure they understand that dramatically improving their reading is a 3-6 month process, and there are no short-cut.

I don’t know if you’re using a reading tutor or some other reading program, but if you think your child would benefit from plugging into a ready-made step-by-step reading software solution then please give Reading Buddy Software a try.

Reading Buddy is a responsive speech recognition computer software program that helps transform young readers by providing real-time corrective feedback and modeling fluent reading. Reading Buddy Software also includes a built-in motivation system that keeps children engaged in the improvement process for 3-6 months.

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.
