bedtime stories a problem for many parents

via digg, a story about how many parents don’t understand the bedtime stories they read to their children.

from the article:

Almost a quarter (23%) skip passages they cannot read or invent words to get to the end of a sentence, the poll found.

well, at least we have this —

…the poll found that reading stories is enjoying a renaissance, with 73% of families preferring it to playing in the park or watching TV.

i’m hoping that the former isn’t true, and that the latter is.
