Reading is a lifelong habit that can start early on in a child's life if parents make an effort to nurture it. Reading as an adult is often fairly easy, but when it comes to your teen, you may be wondering how to get them into the habit of reading. There are many ways that you can encourage your teenager to read more.

Be a good role model and read yourself.

As a parent, you are the best role model for your teenager. The more you read to them and encourage them to read on their own, the more likely they will be to develop this habit.

Teenagers are busy people; finding time for leisure activities can be difficult. However, studies show that reading is an excellent way to reduce stress levels and improve memory function over time.[2] This means that reading has a positive impact on both mental health and physical health.[3] So if you want your teenager to have better overall health in adulthood, it's worth making sure they get into the habit of reading regularly now!

Reading is an excellent way to reduce stress levels and improve memory function over time.

Make it a daily habit to read every day.

If you want to make reading a daily habit, then it’s important to read every day. The best way is to do it first thing in the morning or last thing at night. Reading before bedtime has been shown to help you sleep better, so this will also help you feel more rested and relaxed throughout the day.

There are a few different ways of making reading into a regular part of your routine:

Start small and build up - 

if you feel like there’s no time in your schedule for reading right now, start with just five minutes per day and gradually increase this amount over time until it becomes second nature for you again (and maybe even more!). You can even start by reading when commuting or walking from one place to another – these are all good opportunities where there may not be much else going on anyway!

Set an alarm clock - many people find that having an alarm clock telling them “now is the time” makes things much easier than trying something new without any guidance whatsoever; after all why would anyone need reminding about doing something useful like getting up early enough? This could be particularly effective when combined with other techniques such as setting aside certain days specifically designed around this purpose too (e.g., Wednesdays).

Read each day together as a family.

Reading together as a family is an excellent way to bond with your teenager. It also allows you to understand what your boy or girl is reading and what they are interested in, so you can discuss the subject together. Reading out loud helps you understand what your teenager is reading, what they are interested in and what they are learning. Being able to read aloud well is important for pronunciation, fluency and sounding more intelligent.

If your teenager is reluctant to read out loud, you can also try reading together silently. This is a great way to spend time with your kid and make sure they're reading the books they’re supposed to read. You can also use this as an opportunity for them to practice their fluency by taking turns reading paragraphs aloud.

Tuck them in early when they are young and give them bedtime stories.

Read to your child before bed, as this is a great way to bond with your child and teach them how to read.

Reading helps calm down your children and helps them get ready for bed at night, so encourage them to read by having a library card that lets you borrow books from the local library without paying any fees for doing so! The more interesting books that you choose for yourself or your children, then the more likely they will want to do it again soon after finishing one book instead of stopping altogether because their interest has worn off due to boredom caused by lacklustre content within some titles which makes it difficult to finish reading those books within six months or less time period since starting on them (such as myself).

Read aloud to them for at least 15 minutes every day.

Reading aloud to your children is a great way to help them learn how to read. The benefits of reading aloud for your child are many, including:

It helps them with their vocabulary and pronunciation
It helps them understand the meaning of words
It improves their listening skills

However, some parents are afraid to read aloud because they don't know how to pronounce all the words. If this is you, don't worry! There are many books available that use simple language and short sentences that even beginner readers can understand. Reading stories out loud will help develop a habit of reading in your child and improve their overall literacy skills as well as speaking abilities.

Make reading more interesting by using funny voices or sound effects.

Reading can be more fun if you use different voices for different characters. For example, an adult man could use a deep voice when reading from a book about an adult man, and another character might be voiced by an older woman with a high-pitched voice. If there is something funny in the story, make sure to use silly voices for the characters who are being funny. If there are scary or suspenseful parts of the book, try making those parts scarier or more suspenseful by using creepy sounds such as screams or footsteps approaching you while reading them out loud.

Reading books can also be more enjoyable if you use voices for different characters. For example, a character might have an accent, so make sure to use their real voice when reading that part of the book. Make sure that your reader always uses the same voice for each character in order to keep track of who is speaking at any given time.

Let them choose the books they want to read.

Teach them to choose books that interest them.

Read books at a level they can understand, not too long so they don't get discouraged, and not too short so they don't get bored in the middle of a book.

Read picture books to very young children as well as easy books with long sentences and simple vocabularies for older children who are just starting out reading on their own. Help them understand difficult words by using a dictionary or asking their teacher for help if needed!

This is not a one size fits all approach to reading. As parents, you can use whatever techniques work best with your child.

Encourage your teen to read magazines and newspapers along with books.

You should encourage your teenager to read magazines and newspapers along with books. Reading different material helps you to understand more about the world, while also keeping you up-to-date with current affairs. Books are great for relaxing, but they can be too easy sometimes if you're not used to reading daily. If this sounds like something that might be an issue for your teen, try picking out some articles or news stories from their favorite magazine or newspaper instead of telling them it's time for bed!

There are also many resources available online that offer free books in audio form that can be listened to on any device (smartphone/tablet/computer). Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in a place where we cannot read our favorite book for whatever reason - maybe we're on vacation somewhere without WiFi access? Or maybe there is no library nearby... no fear! There's always something else there waiting patiently just around the corner: audio versions of these same stories! This way even if someone doesn't have time during school hours due to extracurricular activities then they could still listen while finishing chores around house such as cooking dinner or cleaning dishes after eating lunch together as family unit."

Make sure your teen reads out loud every day for 10-15 minutes.

Reading out loud is a great way to practice your reading and pronunciation. It helps with understanding, comprehension and memory. Reading out loud also helps with vocabulary development, spelling and writing skills. You can read with the same book or a different one each day depending on your interest and preference for that day.

Reading out loud also improves your speech fluency which is important in today’s world where you will have to speak in front of people if you want to succeed professionally or socially because of the many opportunities available now days on television as well as online through social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter where there are millions upon millions users worldwide who are always looking forward to interacting with each other via these mediums (that’s why they call them social).

Get your teenager involved in book groups and reading clubs.

One of the best ways to encourage reading in a teenager is to get them involved in book groups or reading clubs. This can be a great way for them to meet new friends, develop new interests and improve their reading skills. It will also give them the opportunity to share their own experiences with others, get feedback on their writing and learn about other cultures. The benefits of reading are endless; it can improve their vocabulary and grammar as well as being an important part of learning English. If they read out loud then they will enjoy it even more because they can hear how good or bad their pronunciation is!

Have lots of reading material around the house, especially books and magazines.

You can find reading material everywhere. In your home, on the bus, even in the library or a bookstore.

There are many kinds of books and magazines available in different places. There are books available for every genre and style you can think of. You can find reading material in both paperback format or electronic format (e-book).

Reading material is available in many languages such as English, Chinese and French etc., Reading material is also available for free on the internet so anyone who wants to read something interesting about anything at any time will have no problem finding it anywhere they go!

In addition, there are many genres and styles of reading material. You can find something in your favorite genre or style by looking at the bookshelves in bookstores or libraries near you. If you're looking for more classical literature, then start looking through classic novels that have been published recently (or even decades ago). If you prefer modern literature, then try searching online for something new such as an e-book.

Reading is a lifelong habit that can start early in life if parents make an effort to nurture it. Reading develops the imagination and stimulates the brain, which helps you learn new things, understand other people's point of view, be more creative, understand other cultures and empathize with others.

Reading keeps your mind sharp and active when you are old enough to enjoy reading again. As we age our memory fades but reading helps keep our minds sharp so that we don't forget things easily as we get older. The more you read the better your memory will become over time because reading improves concentration skills which is essential for learning new information while retaining knowledge gained through experience or education.

Reading can also help reduce stress levels by allowing you take time out on a daily basis by escaping into another world where everything is peaceful; free from worries or concerns about real life problems such as paying bills etcetera..

Summary

In all, reading has many benefits for children, and it's something every parent should encourage in their teens. It helps them to grow up into well-rounded adults who are able to think for themselves, understand the world around them better than someone who doesn't read as much because they don't have as much experience with life outside school or home. Reading also gives children something else that many people lack these days: patience! After all, how often do you see someone waiting patiently when there's a line at a store? We live in an impatient world where everything needs done immediately or else we get upset about it...the sooner we can teach our kids better habits like this one then the better off humanity will be someday!
