5 thoughts on “Reading Strategies for Kids Who Hate Reading

  1. Number 1 contradicts itself. Making a “reading only” time is like a prison sentence to the reluctant reader and can have the opposite effect. In the car ride, you say never to draw attention to the books or suggest reading them. I think that is the key. The more you push the reading, the more they resist. I know. I have an avid reader and a reluctant one in my household.

    Short, humourous, or nonfiction will sometimes get him to read. No pushing or he becomes more defiant.

  2. One tip that can work is to have the child watch TV with the sound off, using closed captioning to read what the actors are saying. The child will be reading, but it may feel more like watching TV.
