Whether your child is using a book or an eReader, in bed or on the sofa, reading aloud or in their head, proper posture is important.
Encouraging good posture while your kids read will stop them from straining their back and neck, and promote proper muscular development. Good posture also enhances concentration, which means more quiet time for the parents!

While getting lost in a book is a great way to spend an afternoon, the back ache that follows is not quite so appealing. Proper reading posture is more important than most people realise, and if you’re regularly working your way through the classics with little thought to your body, you could end up with neck, back and shoulder pain later on.
Adopting good posture will also improve concentration and allow you to read for longer. You’ll be able to sit for longer periods of time, and won’t be thrust back into reality with a niggle in your back just before you reach the big reveal!
