I have a bit of a dilemma. We have different subjects to get through in our HE day. But we don’t seem to be getting much of that done because R wants to read all the time. Now, I am happy that her reading has taken off and it gives me great pleasure to see her enjoy reading so much mashaAllah. However, it means that we’re not getting other subjects done. When this reading marathon started a few weeks ago, I was over the moon. We have a lot of sets of books at home and she doesn’t take one book from the set to read, but has to take the whole set off the bookshelf and then reads one be one. You can imagine how much time that takes. Like I said, I was happy initially and decided to give her that time to enjoy reading. But now, I’m wondering if I should put a limit on the number of books she reads because we are not getting to do subjects like math etc. I don’t feel right telling her that that is enough reading as I know she is learning especially when she picks up non-fiction sets, but then is a good HE day one where Quran and reading is all that has been achieved? It looks like she’s taking after me. I was a bookworm when I was younger. But then other things need to be learnt to? But I don’t want to discourage her by putting a limit. I do say to her you can read later, but then she says to me “Oh please Ummi, just one more!” Which then turns into another 5 more!
