Tell tales at bed­time

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Kids -

Read­ing to or with your chil­dren can deepen your bond with them. “If you have sons, choose sto­ries that are full of ad­ven­ture, an­i­mals, he­roes or fa­mous peo­ple,” sug­gests Alan, whose academy spe­cialises in gen­der-based learn­ing. Boys, he says, have a more ac­tive imag­i­na­tion and en­joy more dra­matic tales.

Girls, on the other hand, “pre­fer fairy tales or sto­ries that are more per­sonal and have more heart”, he notes. So tap into your daugh­ters’ emo­tional side to con­nect with them.
