Q:

12 year old refuses to read at home? Should I take away her phone to make her read? I don't want her to resent reading.

She's in 7th grade and excels on reading test such as ITBS. She has always scored well. She used to read at bedtime every night but now acts as if reading for fun is uncool. Do I make her? I want her to have a love for books and not feel forced. I've tried letting her pick at book fairs and sometimes I'll bring home teen choice books. But they sit and she ends up playing on her phone.
Thanks I feel like I'm letting her "win" so just wanted some other thoughts.
