Reading to your child — at any age — will boost their brain development, your bond, and so much more. And all it takes is a few books, motivation, and a little time. Reading provides a wonderful opportunity for you and your child to connect. It’s a nice way to spend time together and slow down during an otherwise hectic day. Books and stories open up a whole new world to your child.

Children have vivid imaginations as is, so reading serves to further feed their creativity. From infancy to the first day at school, the journey of a child is at home. Parents, grandparents and friends are the first teachers of a kid. Everything they learn has its roots in everything they see, hear and experience at home. In short, the first step towards childhood, adolescence and adulthood begins from the day they open their eyes to the world.
So, why is all this being said? The answer is obvious: An adult of the future is a result of the present’s upbringing. In fact, one could easily say without any inhibitions that, you, as a parent, are responsible for the society. Not just your child; the society on the whole. Granted that, it’s daunting ask. But the future of your child deserves that effort. Doesn’t it?
The role of a parent, primarily, is about imparting knowledge through actions. While what you tell your kid definitely matters, what you do takes precedence.
On the other hand, one meaningful action will trigger a chain of positive reactions having a healthy influence on the child.
Having said that, there is no cause for concern. Teach them the basics of good manners. Talk to elders at home and guests in a polite demeanour. Demonstrate to them the importance of humility whenever there is an opportunity. More importantly, avoid any sort of heated confrontation, with anyone in your kid’s presence. Ensuring these little things is more than a good start to good education at home.
It’s true, parents remain the cornerstone of the child’s progress. Making your home a safe haven and a favourable place to build a child’s potential is paramount.

So, when you think about “education” remember to include all influences that encourage your child’s ability to learn and increase curiosity. Most importantly, teach them you NEVER stop learning in life.
