Read

Whether you pick up a fancy-pants e-reader, listen to books on tape or check out an old-school paperback from the library, take steps to make reading a regular part of your family's life.

Lose yourselves in an age-appropriate science fiction novel by reading a chapter out loud to your kid at bedtime every night. Or, pick up a copy of your teen's school reading list and read as many of those selections as you can. Talking about the various characters and plot points that you loved or didn't quite understand is an ideal way to bring you closer to your kid and improve his reading level and comprehension at the same time. Take it one step further by making a date to see the movie version on video or in the theater, if there's one available.

I read with my son when he wants me to. He is 12 and usually likes to read by himself.
