Parents struggle with bedtime stories

<p>Bedtime stories are proving a struggle for many parents who are not confident readers, says a survey from adult learning agency Learndirect.<br /><br />BBC Online reports that more than 10% of the 1,000 parents asked had struggled to understand some words in the stories they had read to their five to 10-year-old children. Parents said that they made up words they could not read or missed out difficult passages, the survey said.<br /><br />Learndirect, which aims to improve the skills of adults, is producing a children&#39;s book, which it hopes will help both parents and children.
