Help them choose what to read

Help  them  choose what to read.

            “Education has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish what is worth reading” – Reinhold Niebuhr

            One of the primary aims of education is to make a child perform the 3 R’s: reading, writing and arithmetic. Linguistically, physically and intellectually reading precedes writing. It is a very important process in which we receive information which are to be stored in memory during our entire life.

            Even in a technologically advanced world, no one can underestimate the importance of reading. It brings endless and unlimited experiences.

            All parents cannot afford to have personal libraries at homes. A well-equipped school library is a solace to children. Whatever may be the kinds of books in the library, decision regarding ‘what to read’ is important. Many kids of magazines, both good and bad, are available in the market. It is the duty of parents and teachers to help children make wise choices of what kinds of books they read. There are good children’s magazines which are rich reservoirs of fun, frolic and fabulous knowledge. Reading literary works of famous writers in English and regional languages should be encouraged.

            Next to food, our children need good sources of reading. Reading newspapers should be made a part if their daily activity in the morning. Otherwise, they will physically grow but be deprived of intellectual, emotional and linguistic growth in life.

            If children are not properly guided, they will tend to read whatever they get. Hence, parents and teachers should take it as their primary responsibility to help them choose good books and magazines appropriate to their age.
