Family is the place to nurture and preserve the country’s cultural traditions, including the reading culture. To develop the reading culture in the family, parents should encourage reading habits among their children. To nurture their love for books, parents should place books around the house.

Parents should encourage reading habits among their children to develop the reading culture in the family.

Forbes - a famous German educator once said that the destiny of a nation lies in the hands of mothers. That saying emphasises the role of parents in educating the future talents of the country.

Therefore, parents hold an important position in forming and developing reading habits among their children. First of all, parents need to be aware of the necessity and value of reading, in order to inspire the love of books among their children.

Although Jews and people of Jewish descent have a modest population, they represent 22.4% of all Nobel laureates. They have many unique book-related customs, including burying sacred books, kissing books, and leaving books at graves. All of their important milestones are associated with books.

Jews have been responsible for many inventions thanks to the fact that they read a lot and learn a lot from the pages of books.

They are so eager to read that their parents often place a bookcase on their children's bedside so that children, no matter how young they are, can have close contact with books every day.

It is necessary to form reading habits among children from a young age.

If parents want their children to be book lovers, they need to find the proper method to cultivate that love from a young age.

The reading rate among Vietnamese people is not high because most of us have not been nurtured with a love of books since childhood. Therefore, it is necessary to form reading habits among children from a young age.

Another key to encourage the reading habit is letting children have close contact with books regularly. Parents should provide their children with lots of books, so that books can fill every room in the house.

To develop the reading culture of the whole country, joint efforts from people, agencies, organisations, and the government are needed. Many movements have been launched to encourage reading culture in the society through the building of bookcases in every family home, business, and school.

Developing a reading culture is a big problem that takes time to be solved, but as long as each person is aware of the necessity of reading, we will definitely nail it.

The Party and State launched an emulation movement in building a learning society and strengthening lifelong learning. We need to understand that reading is also learning, because books store the knowledge of mankind from ancient to modern times.

Social organisations such as associations of women, youth, war veterans, and the elderly also play an important role in promoting and encouraging reading habits in the family and localities.

Family binds individuals together to create a strong nation. Therefore, in order to develop national resources, it is necessary to start from the family.

The future of a Vietnam where millions of people read books is a seemingly far-fetched dream, but that doesn't mean it can't be realised. And I believe that developing reading habits among your children will provide them great fortune in the future.
