When I was younger, I LOVED to read. So much, in fact, that I was frequently grounded from reading. My mom thought it was a crazy thing to ground me from, but I just couldn’t put a book down!
To this day, I still love to read – I just wish I had more time for it! There were many things that contributed to my love of literature, but my parents were the biggest influence. My mom read to us kids almost every night and encouraged us to read on our own.
They also set up a Reading Rewards System, where we would get paid $2 for every 100 pages we read. We all loved it, and read a TON. At first, of course, we were motivated by the money 🙂 After a while though, we couldn’t help but fall in love with reading!
You can use any kind of rewards you want – whatever motivates your kids! We didn’t have allowance growing up, so this was how we earned our spending money. It was a great system, and I can’t wait for my kiddos to be old enough to do it!
