The Science Of Reading Out Loud: Serious Reasons Why We Should Read to Each Other – Even To Adults

When parents read aloud to their children, the chemicals in their own adult brains begin to change, reflecting reductions in stress hormones and increases in happy hormones. Most importantly, in this age of digital distraction, it facilitates the growth and development of attention span.

Attention span flexibility is incredibly important for young students in school. It can help to predict a child's success with science, math, and even college graduation

The Femsplainers podcast is produced by a pair of women who, regardless of how many cocktails are consumed during the show—and there will be cocktails—take scholarly approaches to any topic. 

In this episode of season three, Danielle Crittenden and Christina Hoff Summers (both successful authors) offer compelling evidence of how we can set our children up for life by providing the miracle effects of reading aloud.

These parenting experts, along with their guest, Author Meghan Cox Gurdon, go on to explain why we should also be reading not just to our children, but to elderly people and newborns as well – for their sake, as well as our own.
