Let them read what they want. Kids who read for pleasure excel academically—not only in language arts but, as recent research from the Institute of Education, in London, found, in math as well. So while you wish he would pick up Dickens, don't make him feel bad about a graphic novel. "A 'junky' series can be good if it gets kids hooked on the habit of reading," says Mary Leonhardt, a former high school English teacher and the author of Parents Who Love Reading, Kids Who Don't.

There's a new Future offspring in town -- baby Hendrix.

Future and Joie Chavis welcomed their first child together over the Christmas holidays. It's unclear exactly when Chavis gave birth, but the couple shared photos of the newborn on Christmas Day.

Chavis, who is also a model and entrepreneur, posted a photo of her baby wearing a white hat and appearing to be deep in thought. She simply captioned the post "Hendrix" and added an eagle emoji.

What are you thinking about, Hendrix?

The "Hndrxx" artist showed he was a proud father and shared the same photo to his Instagram stories and captioned it "Born King my King."

Chavis also shared a photo of the new baby posing with her older daughter, Shai Moss, who she shares with rapper Bow Wow.

The Atlanta-based rapper has four other children with four other women, one of whom is Future Zahir Wilburn, who he shares with his ex-fiance Ciara. Ciara was also engaged to rapper Bow Wow.

Model brave behavior. Want confident kids? They will be less likely to be easily flustered if they see you taking healthy risks. "A lot of adults won't go to a movie solo because they would be embarrassed to be seen sitting alone. So do it, then talk to your kids about it," says David Allyn, the author of I Can't Believe I Just Did That. Similarly, if your kids see you laugh when you realize that your shirt has been on backwards all morning, maybe they'll giggle, instead of feeling embarrassed, when it happens to them.

Congratulations to Future and Joie on their new child together!
