At what point do you have your child stop reading aloud to you? Just curious :)

All of my kids that can read, read aloud in school every day still. Usually when we're doing things as a group, but also for other times. It's a skill we try to keep sharp.

I don't have oldest ds read aloud to me anymore. Once he was fluent, I let him read on his own. I will ask him to read our Bible passage sometimes or read questions aloud to the rest of us if we're working on something together, but it's not an assignment.

We'll probably continue all through high school. I also think it's something that needs continuous practice. I don't want my DC to struggle with reading aloud as adults.

I imagine it's something we will continue through high school as well. We don't do it every day (DD is reading fluently) but once or twice a week we will read something out loud specifically so I can hear expression, enunciation, etc. Nothing stressful or over-long.

One of the things I'm really looking forward to this Christmas when our eldest comes home is listening to him reading to us. ;) In our family, it never ends!

Never. In the home in which I grew up and in my maternal grandmother's home, the adults always read out loud to one another. This is how we are in my home as well.
