However, my Dad has started reading to my Mom, almost on a daily basis now. I have to say, it is so cute! It is great to see them spending time together and reading something that they can then both talk about later.
Sometimes we are unsure about offering to read to someone for fear of treating them like a child, but many people really like to be read to. It can allow them to find enjoyment in reading again if they can't read on their own and often listening to someone else read is a relaxing and comforting experience.
I think it is great that my fast paced Dad takes time to sit and read with Mom. It shows how much he loves her and likes to care for her.
