A Reader's Respite isn't buying the old excuse "I have young kids, I don't have time to read!" anymore. As we see it, if you have kids between the ages of 2 and 10, you've got all the time in the world to read books.
That's right, baby, it's called Time Out. If we really crack down on infractions, Big Kid spends a good 60% of his day in Time Out, leaving us a good 3 or 4 hours to read.
Why just the other day, there was so much Time Out going on around here that we managed to kill a 550-page-chunkster.
And if your kids are over the age of 10, they should be moody and lock themselves in their room all day. That leaves even more time to read.
See? Once you learn the little tricks, this parenting thing is cake.
