For a child to have a good reading habit, he or she must first know how to learn how to pronounce letters and then words.

This I believe can be achieved both at home and from school

Though we tend to resort to the latter. And of course that is not bad, after all that's essence of the existence of the teaching profession. However as parents, its important we get involved in this process too. I will tell you why later on


Sometimes, some kids start to read a bit later than their peers, this may be as a result of an illness, or body metabolism that slows down understanding, however inadvertently they start to read.

The style and method of teaching also aid or affect the reading ability of a child. If the style is right, the child we start reading faster but if the style is wrong like it was when I was in the primary school in the 80s 😂😂😂😂😂, the child will not start reading as fast as he or she should and compared to his or her peers under other styles and methods.

It is also important to note that what works for child A may not work for child B. However, kindly note that I am not a teacher nor an educationist, son my knowledge on this topic may be limited.
