1) Make sure your children & teens have trades. Something they can use their brains & hands to build something, invent something & manufacture something.
2) Paperback & Hardback Books in a Technology Age
There is nothing like a Paperback & Hardback Book.
Many publishers having to compete with what’s going on in the Tech World. Writers are starting to put out their own books, cutting out the Middle Man. Keeping Money in their own pockets.
Readers not spending on physical books like they used to. Many readers now reading books for cheaper on digital devices and can carry a whole library of books on a digital devices. Thus reading more.
White Screen Nooks & Kindles -vs-Color Nooks, Kindles, Ipads & Samsung Tablets for Reading
The Amazon Kindles are Great. The Ipads are Great. The Samsung Tablets are Great. The Barnes and Noble Nooks are Great. They all have Color Screens. Important for Apps & Videos Viewing.
But, if you are a Hardcore Reader, go for the Nooks & Kindles with the White Screens. The Battery Life is Much Better. Maybe 2X-3X Better. You can Read on them without Glares & in any kind of Lighting without tilting the Monitor a Certain Way to get Better Lighting. The Color Monitors are Very difficult to Read Outside in Sunlight. Many times, you have to adjust the Brightness level on Color Screens.
Overall, the White Screen Nooks & Kindles are a Better Reading Experience, Less Strain on Your Eyes & Better Battery Life.
In many ways, it is the closest we will get to Reading a Physical Book in A Digital Age.
3) Relevant Education on Many Levels
School is not enough for Youth. They must learn trades. Jobs ain’t knocking on doors. Teach them to be financially sharp too.
Find out what your child has a passion for, other than sports & entertainment.
Help develop it. Inspire them to 1 day make into a business.
What happen to Trades in School?
Without a trade, people in bad shape. We go down roads we never thought we would to survive.
Talking Intelligent don’t mean anything, if we can’t survive in a hardcore world. We must all build our toolkit of skill sets.
No money or time to go back to school. Read, study, talk to old people, become apprentice, buy Kindle/Tablet, Download Free Ebooks from Amazon, Internet, etc.
People go to College, listen to Professors lecture, read, study, & take tests. What if you don’t have money or time for College?
Inspire your Children to Love Reading by telling them good stories. Good stories inspire good questions. Read stories to them with morals, values, lessons, overcoming difficulties, strategies, analyzing. Thinking, in other words.
When we read to our children, we must not read monotone. That is boring even to a grown person. Just imagine how boring monotone reading is to children. We must read with voice inflections, excitement, rhythm. This helps keep the children’s attention.
Oral Reading is an Art form we must master to Inspire our children to Love Reading.
*—>> How to Inspire Children to Memorize Poems
Teach your children little short poems way before they start to read. It is best to have them memorize poems that rhyme. It sticks in their minds better. We must build up the children’s memories.
Later on…have them recite the poems back to you. Have them memorize a poem a week. Or a poem every two weeks. We can have them do this right after they learn a few words. It does not even matter if they only have a few words in their vocabulary. So what if they are still just baby talking.
If they learn a poem a week, that’s 52 poems a year. If they learn a poem every 2 weeks, that’s 26 poems a year. If they learn a poem a month, that’s 12 poems a year. Use your own discretion.
We must must not underestimate what our children have the capacity to learn. Our children can handle pretty much anything we work with them with.
