Child Reading Problems: Here's a Fun Trick for a Struggling Reader!

When we're doing something that's hard for us, it can be a challenge to stay motivated. And in order to be successful, motivation goes a long way. If your child likes animals, having him read to the dog or other family pet can help improve his reading skills. 

  • Children don’t feel self-conscious when reading out loud to a dog, so they can relax and focus on the reading without embarrassment. 
  • Reading improves because the child is practicing the reading skills, building self-esteem and associating reading with something pleasant and fun!
