I have 2 boys, ages 10 and 7. Last summer we noticed that we lost them during the day to video games and TV, because during the school year we don’t allow those activities. We decided that in the summer they would have to earn video game playing time by reading for it. For every 15 minutes they want to play, they have to read for 1 hour. The time only counts if they tell myself or my husband and we give them our special timer to keep track with. It works really great! We let them bank time if they choose, but I can usually get 3 or 4 days of reading out of them in a row before they come to redeem the time they have saved. If you have older kids I highly recommend this.
