How Can I Get Son to READ a Book?
My DS10 has summer reading to do. He has to read three books. He picked out one book (the thinnest one he could find) in July, and he fussed every time we told him to go read. He wouldn't read it before bed, he wouldn't read it even when he said he was bored. I ended up reading the book to him. So we got another book from the library and I refused to read it to him. This is HIS reading project, right? Crying episodes and him lying, saying he did read a few chapters but totally failing my simple quiz, what can I do? He enjoyed listening to me read but I'm sure that is not what the teachers want. Am I right? What can I do? I try to get him to pick topics of interest to him. Nothing seems to interest him. He said he likes books about Star Wars and Legos. What the heck? What's wrong with my kid? What can I do to motivate him?
