My 10 year old is otherwise smart, academically doing well but he just will not read.I read a lot to him as a child. He doesnt play videogames a lot but prefers outdoor activities to sitting down with a book no matter how good it is. How can I get him to develop an interest for reading without forcing him ( which will make it all the more unappealing). I strongly believe it's his disinterest in reading that is limiting his vocabulary and thereby affecting his language and ability to communicate effectively.I personally love to read but I know he has his own likes and dislikes. How can I get him to read on his own?
