    Instead of calling it "narration" or anything formal, just ask him questions about it. Draw out of him his thoughts and ideas. Eventually it will begin to come naturally to discuss what he has learned. Slow and steady, you have many years ahead of you!

    I have been reading with earnest all of your posts and greatly appreciate them. I have essentially given up on the narration with my 8 year old son (perfectionist by the way). His standard answer is I don't know or I forget. In some respects it may be plain laziness or a plea to my tendency to give up when he does not cooperate. But how do I encourage him to narrate what I have read or he has read?

    Perhaps you could rephrase it so that she doesn't feel under pressure. Sometimes, the pressure of doing it right causes fear in a perfectionist child.

    Thank you for your articles. My problem is, that my 6 years old daughter doesn't want to narrate. Maybe this is a problem of obedience. How could I persuade her not to whine but learn to narrate?
