Your investment makes a difference

Does reading to your preschooler make a difference?  Yes! 

Does the warmth, care and support your give make a difference?  Yes!

A researcher from Great Britain followed children for a period of twenty years.  “Parental nurturance” at age four made a positive difference through the teen years.

It’s great data and certainly encouraging for all who invest in  young children.

(Although I usually give a link to the primary source, the data  is bewilderingly technical, so here’s the readable summary.)
