Have you ever watched your child burst into tears while learning to read and wondered why such a basic skill is causing so much stress and anxiety? It’s a normal reaction. As adults, most of us barely remember how we learned to read, how long it took, or what kinds of obstacles we might have overcome before things finally fell into place.
Learning to Read Can Often be a Challenge
The good news is… there are steps you can take as a parent to demystify the process.
From a beginning reader to Shakespeare, chemistry, and even math, the ability to read well and understand written language are the most important educational skills your child needs, so they can achieve success in school, in a career, and in life. Children who read better are often able to write better, allowing them to become optimal learners. Your child can be a reader for life with the help of Learning Lab’s LifeReader™.

Why Reading by the End of Third Grade Matters
Children who are behind their peers in reading also struggle with low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy. Furthermore, research shows that students who can’t read on grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times less likely to graduate by the age of 19 compared to their peers. As if those factors weren’t concerning enough, poor reading skills are often the common denominator in school discipline, poor attendance, high dropout rates, and juvenile crime.
