My son is almost 6 and he can read fairly well, small beginning reader books- nothing amazing, just right on track I guess. How do I encourage him to try to read more on his own- I don't mean alone but I mean read to me instead of me reading to him all the time? Do I do a reward chart for numbers of books read with a reward?? He LOVES looking at books and the pictures but he just isn't interested in making the effort I guess to read the words.Answer Question

My son was like that and I think most students who read a lot at school are like that as well. They like to be read to. You may want to try Parent/Child books. The child reads one page and the parent reads the next page. You can buy these types of books or you can just to that with any book. I would start there and then do you read one day and he reads the next.

Next question overall
Why am I already gaining weight? I can't even keep anything down!
