We have an obligation to read aloud to our children. To read them things they enjoy. To read them stories we are already tired of. To do the voices, to make it interesting and not to stop reading to them just because they they learn to read to themselves. We have an obligation to use reading-aloud time as bonding time, as time where no phones are being checked, when the distractions of the world are put aside.
