why should a child read fast?|Women’s magazine “Liza”

Very often, par­ents force their chil­dren to read, and in the sum­mer they do it with a dou­ble effort. After all, a son or daugh­ter has so much free time! Some adults have the impres­sion that their child sim­ply has to read quick­ly. And it’s one thing when a son or daugh­ter man­ages to increase the speed of read­ing, and it’s quite anoth­er when a child tries, tries, but noth­ing works out for him. So there are good rea­sons for this. How to be?

Psy­chol­o­gists advise par­ents to watch their son or daugh­ter more often. Pay spe­cial atten­tion to how, what and what the child likes to talk about, as well as how often he paus­es dur­ing a con­ver­sa­tion. Why is it impor­tant? One of the rea­sons for a child’s slow read­ing may be a small vocab­u­lary. In this case, many words that will be found in the text will be unfa­mil­iar, and this, in turn, slows down the read­ing process. What to do? In this case, mom or dad should enrich the baby’s vocab­u­lary, talk more with him, com­mu­ni­cate, and also read diverse lit­er­a­ture. Anoth­er rea­son for “bad read­ing”: lack of atten­tion.

If a child reads inat­ten­tive­ly, if he is con­stant­ly dis­tract­ed by some­thing, he will not be able to con­cen­trate on pro­nounc­ing the text and will not be able to under­stand its mean­ing.

Speed ​​reaction

Par­ents should also pay atten­tion to whether the pro­posed lit­er­a­ture is select­ed accord­ing to age and how much it cor­re­sponds to the lev­el of devel­op­ment of the child.

An inter­est­ing obser­va­tion: a child will not read faster than he speaks. If in life the child is slow, melan­cholic, then you should not expect a quick reac­tion from him as a cho­ler­ic. This applies to every­thing, read­ing in this case is no excep­tion. A bal­anced and “impen­e­tra­ble” phleg­mat is also unlike­ly to be in a hur­ry and “swal­low” page after page. If in ordi­nary life a child thinks for a long time before answer­ing a ques­tion, draws out words, then he will read more slow­ly than usu­al. And there is noth­ing bad and ter­ri­ble in this.

The most impor­tant thing, experts are sure: not the num­ber of words read, but aware­ness. What is the use of the fact that one of the chil­dren will read a giv­en pas­sage of text in a minute, but will not be able to answer ques­tions about what they have read? And also what is the point of mix­ing words togeth­er, not see­ing any dots or com­mas, and then mak­ing big eyes, sur­prised that the child him­self did not under­stand any­thing.

How to encourage and motivate?

In no case should you laugh at mis­takes, reproach for mis­read words, and even more so: stand over your soul “with a belt”. Many par­ents have this habit of pun­ish­ing their child for bad behav­ior by read­ing. Phras­es are espe­cial­ly pop­u­lar: “you won’t go out for a walk if you don’t read from now to…”, “you won’t get a toy (ice cream) if you don’t read 30–40 words per minute” or “now rewrite this text…”. Famil­iar? If yes, then psy­chol­o­gists are sure that such meth­ods do not work.



But moti­va­tion works, name­ly: encour­ag­ing the read­ing of any print­ed mate­ri­als: chil­dren’s mag­a­zines, chil­dren’s jokes, comics, horo­scopes, etc. Let the chil­dren choose what inter­ests them! The main thing is that chil­dren’s lit­er­a­ture should always be avail­able. By the way, such tech­niques as a book with bright pic­tures acci­den­tal­ly for­got­ten on the table or a mag­a­zine opened on the page with the announce­ment of a new chil­dren’s car­toon work effec­tive­ly. The child should have a desire to pick up, look through, read and learn some­thing new.

If a child is inter­est­ed in a car­toon or a TV show, par­ents should pick up a book on this top­ic and offer to find out if the author’s ver­sion dif­fers from the tele­vi­sion one.

The most impor­tant thing is that par­ents them­selves love to read, but whether it will hap­pen quick­ly or slow­ly is not so impor­tant. Think about how often you your­self take a book in your hand. It is very impor­tant that chil­dren see their par­ents with a book as often as pos­si­ble!
