Parents help a child develop phonological awareness

The most important thing that a parent can do to help a child succeed in school is to read to the child on a regular basis from infancy. To aid in developing phonological awareness skills the parent should read books that rhyme. Parents should take every opportunity to talk about words, especially about how they sound. This will help the child develop the skill of thinking about words as entities separate from their meaning. When you are looking at books with the child talk more about the sounds in the word than the letters that are in the print.
