This is just out of control, limit bedtime stores because its unfair…. Is it my fault, or the fault of a parent who takes the time to read to there child? If you can’t read a book to your child, then shame on you, get off your butt and learn to read….
Could snuggling up in bed and reading a bedtime story to your children ever be a bad thing?
An ABC Radio National program about whether “Having a loving family is an unfair advantage” has questioned whether bedtime reading is causing an uneven playing field for more unfortunate children.
British academic Adam Swift told ABC presenter Joe Gelonesi the benefits of the time-honoured custom were greater than a private school education.
“Evidence shows that the difference between those who get bedtime stories and those who don’t — the difference in their life chances — is bigger than the difference between those who get elite private schooling and those that don’t,” Mr. Swift said.
According to Mr. Swift, the “devilish twist” was whether bedtime stories should be restricted.
