Why dad’s bedtime stories are better for children
A study at Harvard University into the effect on infants’ language after a year of hearing stories read by their parents found that girls seemed to benefit particularly from being read to by a male. Elisabeth Duursma, who carried out the research, said: ‘The impact is huge, particularly if dads start reading to kids under the age of two. Sadly British research found that one in four parents of young children never reads to them, or does so just once every six months. Only half of parents said they read to their children every day.
With everyday demands on family time and significant financial commitment leading to longer working hours – is the research that surprising?
