WHEN DADS READ...

ONE SMALL STEP BY A DAD...

                                                           HUGE CHANGE FOR THE AFRICAN CONTINENT

You have heard it said that, when you want to hide something from

an African, just put it in a book.

Father and Son

The Aanyedoo team believes that we can change this narrative. We are convinced that, if we could reach Dads and get them to be more engaged in reading with their children at home, we could direct the interest of the next generation to become avid bookworms and hence affect the whole African continent.

Reading to children has often been classified as a mothering and feminine activity for bonding and as such many dads don’t particularly gravitate towards it. However, here are some interesting facts about children who routinely enjoy reading with dad:

  • Children feel nurtured, supported, engaged and will have more advanced vocabularies and communication skills. They will likely be more prepared to begin school and perform well throughout their school years.

  • Dads take stories to another level when they act out actions in the book and make exciting comparisons to things they have experienced together.

  • Bedtime stories are relaxing for both the child and father. Research shows that muscle tension and heart rate decreases within six minutes of turning the pages.

HURDLES

Most dads however get caught up in the cycle of life, hiding behind this cloak with excuses such as

  • I just don’t have the time

  • I don’t know how,

  • I never got that opportunity

  • Mothers do this better

  • It’s too late in the day

 Benefits of reading with their  children to fathers themselves

  •  Fathers say that reading to their children at bedtime helps them feel emotionally and physically closer to their kids, especially if they have to be away all day at work.

  • When their sons are older, some fathers report that typically “masculine” reading activities, like looking up sports statistics, offer important opportunities to share time and interests with their sons.

  • Even fathers who initially lack skill or confidence in reading have been shown to gain both, through reading with their children.
     

On our part, Team Aanyedoo, has carefully curated a FREE strategic and insightful online coaching session of just 45 minutes (per module), to help Dads overcome most, if not all, of these hurdles.
