#36: Reading Skills/Literacy
Parents strive to be an inspiration to their children, but what happens when children become an inspiration to their parents? Carey Rigby-Wilcox tells a powerful story about a boy and his dad and how they come to support each other in their learning. The lessons they learn take them well beyond their ability to read.
This story reflects Carey’s own experiences as an adult learner and a parent to four children. Parents are their children’s first teachers and they provide the foundation for their lifelong learning. When parents struggle with literacy frustration, fear and hopelessness can take over. Carey learned through her literacy tutor, that commitment and support are needed to help others. As Carey became more literate, she became more empowered and now she is an advocate of learning and an active partner in her children’s education.
