Mom Tells Why She Won't Teach Her Son to Read

"I'm not teaching my 5-year-old how to read"

The experts say that little kids have brains like sponges: Whatever you put in front of them, they’re going to learn from it. One of the best things that you can do for a kid is read to him or her; it helps them develop a larger vocabulary and gets them ready to read.

When are children expected to learn how to read themselves though? Is it the responsibility of the parent or of the school system to perfect their reading skills? One mom is saying that reading to your child and teaching them other life skills is far more important than teaching them to read at a certain age, and she has many critics.
