Establish a routine and an expectation for fun sharing of printed information.

Start a newspaper, magazine, or computer “clip” file of items you want your Little to read or to know about.  The range can be as wide as your Little’s interests, needs, and age/grade level.  For older Littles it is appropriate to pass on a series of readings on tips and trends in college admissions, the latest thinking on what the good career fields will be, news of local college campuses, suggestions for how to get a job, and hobbies, sports, or fields that your Little enjoys.  For younger Littles, consider material from age appropriate books and magazines or websites or knowledge-building articles from the daily newspapers about items from dinosaur discoveries to animal science to young people who do something self-initiating, creative, or bold.  Establish a routine and an expectation for fun sharing of printed information.
