1. Time to reunite
Bedtime is the best time for you to reconnect with your kids through a story or two. This might be the only time where you get to do something enjoyable together. However, this sacred time will provide you with an idea of how your kid thinks through the comments and impressions the kid has concerning the story, characters etc.
2. Time for enjoyment
All kids require a break from the fights they have with their siblings, activities with their friends and homework. Stories before going to bed are relaxing, for they allow their minds to imagine a world that takes them on a magical trip away from their daily troubles.
3. Develop tendencies to read
Nowadays, books have become the last thing on the kids’ schedule thanks to the invasion of electronic games. Reading to your kid is the first thing you can do to bring him back on the right track and make it a habit for him. When reading becomes a daily routine, the kid will get excited about it; therefore, it will raise a love for reading and give the child a push at school.
4. Widens the language and attention span
When a child listens to a story, it grabs his attention more than when he is reading alone. Their knowledge of the language improves. They will get to ask you about the words, which they don’t know how to pronounce. Bedtime stories stay with a kid for a long time and so will the vocabulary they have learnt.
5. Grasp a morale
Kids will learn morals from the stories they hear. Fables are the best stories to provide lessons, which are relevant to everyday life, and they are fun, entertaining and simple. Therefore, lessons on honesty and morality will improve their minds.
6. Inspires the imagination
Stories that don’t include images inspire the kids and make them become more imaginative. In addition, stories that include colored pictures help in developing the kid’s creative and artistic skills.
7. Fills the gaps that technology makes bigger
All the technological and electronic devices such as TV, video games and others hold the kids’ attention for a long time and they require electricity or batteries. However, books give the kids an enriching experience that lasts for on the long run. In addition to being a great source of entertainment, bedtime stories relax the kids and get them to sleep.
Hopefully, you will finally know the importance of stories and their impact on children. A thirty minutes story after their bedtime every night is enough to improve their future whether in school, work and life. Stories help kids to understand life’s issues no matter how important they are. As a conclusion, this is your chance to win your kid’s heart and attention just as the characters of a story always do.
