How About Library reading?Hello Friends,
In my last forum discussion, we had discussed about the effects of the recent gadgets.
In the similar way now a days library reading is just vanishing in children. They don't even no what is library or library card or member etc. Actually these gadgets are not only effecting the kids eye, I think they are like virus which is effecting on children's mind also.
The way to my son's school there is one library. I hardly see people going there, the board itself is full of dust and can't make out the library board. But neighbour building boards are so clear comparatively. This it self shows that how much reading habits are vanished, not only by children even elders also have lost it.
When we were in school we use to regularly visit the school library for reference to make projects. But now when child is assigned any project it tells the parents and they just download in net and give them. By doing this the children are losing the habits of learning new things and making use of library.
One day when I was bringing my son home I told him, "See this is library where we get lots of books and different type of ideas to do your project". My son immediately said WHY TO TAKE SO MUCH PAIN WE WILL GO HOME AND GET IT IN NET.
Actually this is the reply of most of the children now.
Adding to this the schools are introducing android tab to children instead of text books. By doing such activities I think the word LIBRARY only will vanish from children.
Now I have put a habit to my son to visit the nearest library and thought him how to find out books related to our topic.
I think the school should make library reading compulsory instead of using tab.
