If we ask people about their hobbies, many would say “reading”. Earlier generations used to read a lot compared to current generation. Reading enables a person to be more intelligent and knowledgeable. There is no one in the world who hasn’t read a book – it might be a school book, a comic or even a magazine. As we all know, by reading we unknowingly gather information. Books take us to another world. Even without visiting a new country, a person understands the culture and traditions of that country. When a child sees his elders reading, it inspires him or her to read. Parents should take care that as we take pain to inculcate the feelings of spirituality, social awareness and traditional values in children, we should also ensure that children befriend books. In this we can ensure that we are bringing up good citizens. When a child reads he or she can even find solutions to his problems through the books. Nowadays parents are too busy with their hectic life. They do not have time to pay attention to the concerns of their children. In many situations books can serve as guiding factor or helpline in children’s life. Parents should take care that the child spends less time on TV and Internet and spends more time on reading.
