King Tee Dee reflects on the past whilst inspiring a reading culture

By Loide Ambondo

Mshasho’s King Tee Dee took an opportunity to encourage a reading culture by sharing a picture on his Instagram account of meme a Hilma Kathindi who used to force him to read in his youth.

Reading is one of the basic skills children need to learn to succeed.

Not only are good reading skills academically beneficial to students, but they are also a skill required for lifelong success. Reading improves vocabulary, increases the span of attention, and promotes better critical thinking.

In my primary school years, Meme Hilma Kathindi used to buy me books that were not yet at my standard, he added.

“I thought she hated me by asking me to read more but I understand why today and I’m so grateful,” King TeeDee said.

Many students are less interested in developing their reading habits today. Nevertheless, this habit should be instilled on the students to be able to stand on the same ground as other leading countries

The technique to raise a child is to get them hooked by leading by example at an early age. Have them interested in reading not only books but also menus, street names, countries, movies and more?

If teachers and parents follow a proactive approach to more reading and form good reading habits themselves, that will augur well for the future generation.

Regrettably, reading patterns are often delayed until a child starts primary or nursery school. Nonetheless, if parents can encourage reading in the young, this dedication will go a long way in the future in instilling good reading habits in their children.
