What do you do to get your kids off electronics? In addition to playing board games, practicing their instruments and helping cook dinner, we enforce the schools’ requirements for them to get a designated number of reading minutes in per day. What they read doesn’t matter. They simply need to pick up a book… and read. We regularly try to introduce them to new subject matter and topics they are interested in. Sometimes we select random books that might draw them in. One example is Surfside Girls: The Secret of Danger Point (Paperback Graphic Novel) from IDW Publishing which we included in our list of gift ideas for school-aged kids. Find ways to encourage your kids to read, perhaps start by entering to win this graphic novel!
