I don’t know why this happens. Certainly some kids’ books are very boring to adults, but most are fun, especially those that rhyme. As I write this I feel the urge to yawn just thinking about the situation. But nevertheless, I did read to my kids and now read to my grandchildren.
There are, however, fathers that don’t take time to read to their kids and they don’t know what they are missing. It’s not on their list of things to do and it seems a bit boring when there are other things to do.
But I want all dads (and moms) to know just how important it is for your children!

PS. The Difference Between a Father and a Dad – Difference #8 is the first I have discussed in some detail. I will try to do that in the remaining 8 differences and maybe catch up on the first 7 differences later.
Thank you so much for reading!
