A study found that many parents don't read bedtime stories to their children.  I was better about this when my children where in their toddler years, it wasn't a nightly thing but we would read a lot of books together.

In a new poll, only 13 percent of British moms said they read a story to their children every night, even though three-quarters recalled being read to on a daily basis when they were kids, according to The Guardian.
