My son has liked reading since he was LITTLE..I read to him alot, grandpa read to him, Daddy read to him.. WE ALL ENCOURAGED READING..BECAUSE WE ALL LOVE TO READ.. We wanted him to..
Then from out of no where.. he comes home and says reading is no fun, reading is stupid, and Reading is not gonna lead him anywhere(I have always told him he could take mini adventures in books.. fly off to any destination...)
I am sure it was some stupid kid.. saying something.. I am not positive but I assume.. BUT WHAT DO I DO ABOUT IT??

I would start off by asking him why he feels that way. The best thing you can do to help him love reading is let him choose materials to read. Take him to the library and book store and see what he's interested in. Maybe what he's being asked to read at school is too easy or too hard or maybe it's just not topics or genres he likes.

Also, keep in mind if this was a sudden change of heart it could be temporary. If something happened on that day he might have felt that way for the moment. It doesn't necessarily mean the way he feels about reading has really changed.
