As your kids get older it can get harder and harder for them to read. Especially with other easier forms of entertainment such as video games and videos. As kids grow over time, so do their interests. That is one big reason on why they aren’t reading as much. When they see that their friends are doing other activities other than reading, this can also affect how they feel and when they want to read.
- They are not interested in the books that you are giving them.
- They have more interest in other activities, especially with ones dealing with friends.
- They are watching a lot of video content, which can be better or worse.
