4. Surround your child with text of all kinds and he/she will learn
to read. Read to them, read in front of them, help them, don't push
them. Children allowed to learn on their own timetable do learn to
read at widely divergent times�there is NO right time for all
children. Some learn to read at three years old and others at 12 or
even older. It doesn't matter. Children who are not yet reading are
STILL learning�support their learning in their own way. Pushing
children to try to learn to read before they are developmentally
ready is probably a major cause of long-term antipathy toward
reading, at best, and reading disabilities, at worst.
