Reading Bank

Reading is very important to our family. With TV and video games and such 2 of our 3 children were very resistant to it. So, I came up with the idea of a Reading Bank. 

What we do is this: no video games or TV during the week. To watch TV or play video games on the weekend they need to make withdrawals from the Reading Bank. They read during the week and make deposits. They have a bank book. And they record by minutes how much time they read. 

My middle daughter makes withdrawals to talk on the phone. So they want to watch TV they have to put in their deposits of time spent reading!
