Reading Books to Your Child Improves Their Behavior as Well As Yours

Parent Interventions

New research has revealed that reading to children improves not only their behavior but also that of the parent.

Regular reading of books to children can prevent harsh behavior of parents while children become less hyperactive or disruptive, according to a study done by Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.


The joint reading acitivity helps in strengthening the bond between parents and children while reducing the hyperactivity of the child. The study was conducted among 2165 mother-child pairs from 20 large cities based on interviews with mothers of infants aged 1-3. This was followed up two years later to assess the behavior of the parent and the child.
