Bedtime stories have long been used to strengthen parent-child relationships and help children sleep. But lately, researchers have added other forces to this nighttime routine.
As you and your child sail into the Wild country Things with Max or sample green eggs with Sam, they improve the brain growth of your child.
Over years, studies have shown that the reading of bedtime stories to their children by parents has a beneficial effect on their brain growth and activation of intellectual imaging and narrative understanding areas.
Below are 5 benefits of reading bedtime stories:
1. Cultivates imagination:
Now that visual stimuli are provided through TV, IPads, IPhones, Xbox, etc., children rarely tap into their imagination unless we read or can read them. Some kids love television as their imagination creates visuals. Since there are no children’s radios, they would become weaker if we read to our children and use their precious imagination.
2. Establishes a habit:
When you finish your kids’ day with bedtime stories, this special time will be a routine and a part of life. When you read to your children, they become readers. You will never have to encourage your children to read. They will find reading a pleasure.
3. Opens the doorway to writing:
Writing comes from reading. Until we can read, we can’t write. What’s the first thing that comes? Reading the letter or writing it? You could create the next Louisa alcohol when you read to your children!
4. Help lower stress level:
Learning-based stress management can be as effective in children as in adults. Reading makes the child’s imagination move away to places he was not to and brings them on an experience that goes beyond his usual world. In adults, reading helps us to leave our difficulties and to relax and relax our muscles. In the meantime, cuddling with a parent lowers cortisol levels in children, enabling them to relax and focus more.
5. Enhance their language and communication skills:
Conversations are easier if you speak about something that can appeal to you and your kids. This is when it is important to read a novel. Encourage your child to talk while reading the stories of bedtime. Awareness is an indispensable social skill and this can be accomplished by book discussions. Let your child know what is next in the story and what has made them think. Learn an interactive experience. Let your child know that all views are welcome to comfortably express their thoughts.
It’s never too soon for your child to start reading educational books. If they are too young to speak, reading from birth aloud will encourage your child to familiarize him or her with the language and learn pre-literacy skills that will enable him or her to thrive while entering school.
