getting ds to read

How do you get your kid to read? I feel like i got in trouble bc the teacher added a "please read this week" note with his reading log.

He only read for 15 minutes last week. I'm just so sick of fighting and arguing with him. He picks his own books. HE has to read it or else it doesn't count. I've taken away everything to get him motivated enough to read, no tv, no games, no friends. Nothing at all. And i only got 15 minutes out of him. It's not like i don't care. I'm just sick of this taking over our lives. The only thing we argue about, yet we argue ALL THE TIME bc i won't let him do anything else since he doesn't do his 'homework'

He's 9 now.

In our home no tv no computer( unless for school work) no video games on school nights. Also if my kids were in bed with teeth brushed they earned extra reading time. If all he can do after dinner is read well he probably would.
