Reading Is Rebellious
Robert McNees has an 8-year-old who loves to read. Apparently, she thinks that reading under the covers past her bedtime is considered an act of rebellion. “It hasn’t yet occurred to her that her flashlights never seem to run out of batteries,” he concludes. Reading can be an act of rebellion. It means you’re learning!
Hats off to this dad for giving his child the space to learn and grow through literature. We can learn so much from books. Additionally, we love that he’s incessantly ensuring that his daughter has battery-equipped flashlights at the ready for all of her late-night, under-the-covers reading adventures. A+ parenting. That is one lucky parent.
