    Headline: Reading to your children gives them an advantage

    My Reaction: THAT'S THE POINT! It just happens to be fun, too.

    No you wouldn't. At least you never have. And even if you did answer. Someone that thinks others lie is only describing her own MO. I wouldn't expect anything from you.

    Parents start reading to kids **before kids can read.** That's kind of why the parent is doing the reading. It's the early head start and the interaction that confers the advantages.

    Of course. Parents start helping kids sound out words, kids start associating words with pictures, they explore new places and ideas, kids start relating it to things they see in 'real life,' parents answer their questions....it's complete bonding experience that helps form a kid's interests and ability to read.
