Child/parent agreement. The child picks when they are doing it and what the consequence is if they don't do it.

Make it fun, little bits at a time so not frustrated, even introduce rewards to start with until they get in to the habit of doing it.

Weekly star chart, or jar to fill and then if succesful on Friday choose a small reward.

Try different ways to see what works...hope this helps.

Reading on a nighttime

We make it a treat as they go to bed.  We get ready for bed and sit together and talk about the story. Sometimes I read one page and my child reads the next.  Then we have fun talking about the pictures and guessing what might happen next.
