Teaching Your Toddler To Read Is Possible

Most parents want to know the best way to teach a child to read and I wanted to teach my toddler how to read to set them on the path of the best education. I know there are so many benefits of reading to toddlers and I’m very much aware of the importance of reading to toddlers, so that’s what I did. Every evening I sat with my son and read various short stories for kids. I’d even hunted out a reading list for toddlers to find out which ones were best. It wasn’t until a friend recommended Reading Head Start that I considered enrolling in a professional online reading program for my child. Overall, it was a great program but it had a few cons too.

What I Loved

One of the things I really loved about the Reading Head Start program was how user-friendly it was. It’s a dream for busy parents and you can do the course at your own pace. With its videos, worksheets and interactive games, it did a good job at keeping my toddler’s attention. And the best part, they lived up to their promise completely. My son really was able to read after 30 days. We committed to it together and it paid off. He can’t read perfectly of course, but he is able to decipher words and enjoy reading.

What I Didn’t Love So Much

One of the not-so-great things about this program was how I couldn’t find much information about the creator. I would have loved to have found out more about her and maybe even reach out to her. I also think it would have been better if this wasn’t purely an online reading guide because my internet connection isn’t always perfect.

Regardless of the two cons, I was very pleased with this program and don’t regret ordering it for a minute. It really helped my son and I can’t complain about the great price either.
