    Reading should be a joyful experience. Just read to your children something that you both enjoy, and they will read on their own when they are ready. I am very big on education, but I get tired of hearing about programs that cram "education" down our childrens' throats before they are ready.

    Never tried it. I just read to them and they've all picked it up at varying paces. My 4 and 3 year olds are beginning to read on their own (very basic books), BUT they want to and that's key... they have to be interested. My oldest was NOT interested in reading on his own at these ages and so I just read TO him and he did it at his own pace.

    I advocate doing it the good old fashioned way... read to your kids.

    I use every tool that I have at my disposal to teach reading and make it enjoyable (read to them, narrate, dialogue, flash cards, videos, etc) for my son... If parents think just reading to them is good enough, more power to them. I, however, believe that there are many ways to teach and not just one. Plus, not every method works for every child.
