Reading to children at bedtime gives kids "unfair advantage"

THE ABC has questioned whether parents should read to their children before bedtime, claiming it could give your kids an “unfair advantage” over less fortunate children.

“Is having a loving family an unfair advantage?” asks a story on the ABC’s website.

“Should parents snuggling up for one last story before lights out be even a little concerned about the advantage they might be conferring?”

The story was followed by a broadcast on the ABC’s Radio National that also tackled the apparently divisive issue of bedtime reading. ...

Are problems began with the development of the department of education and the proliferation of colleges and an idolizations of the "yoots" of America. Unfair advantage- laughable.

God, help me give my children the greatest advantages I can. May I read more of the greatest works of literature. May I snuggle more, love more and pray more with my children.

They think that's bad.If they want to give children an advantage all the way/across the board around,they could encourage reading Scripture.Of course, then most of what passes for suitable reading material would be discarded,including most text books in government schools. I know of a lot of higher educated people who are just as illiterate as those who are deemed less privileged.
They do make some of this stuff up,don't they? This is really unbelievable.
Maybe the people who drew this conclusion could benefit from investing more time reading themselves.

Now c'mon Mike, you know very well that God providentially provides advantages to many people in the nations and even advantages to nations themselves.

Yes, but remember all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others

stealing and destroying communist think won't be happy till everyone's in the ground, then we'll all be equal.

thing is, literacy is due to CHristians who gave their lives so that the bible would be translated in the language of the people.

if literacy is taken from a society, it will not be the Christians who do it.

No. I'd be more concerned over the mind development of the person asking the question.

That is bizarre. We read to our children most every night during family worship to instruct in the ways of God, Scripture, and theological education. All men are able to do so with their children provided they can read.

Hi John,

The only problem I find with reading to children at bedtime is that it conditions them to fall asleep when books are open the rest of their lives?????
This is one of the reasons I don’t read the Bible AT NIGHT ONLY.

Illiteracy is high.

Boy, this country sure has taken an odd turn in the morality and logic departments. The best morality example that has taken the US by storm would be the new, glorious age of sodomy being resurrected, gorified, and condoned. As tolerance becomes the nations new motto, I have to wonder what's behind door number two. As for logic, this particular story aside, which is ridiculous, by the way, I consider this governments attitude towards those who want to kill and destroy us. They openly share theses goals as they are allowed to section off portions of cities, and set up their own courts of law. Nobody speaks out against them openly so as not to offend and this government, along with the liberals say that if we all just love, love, love them, then we will eventually win them over. We are going to "tolerance" ourselves to our destruction.
