If your child is already 10 years old, it is a little late, but you can still try.
My children are 12 and 15, and they absolutely love reading. What I did was this: From their earliest ages, I sat down with them and read books to them. At bedtime, I told them stories or also read books to them. So they grew up with the experience that books contain an entire interesting world, and that reading is something beautiful.
I have to admit that it takes time, an hour every day for years.
But now, when I send my children into their room at night, usually they read by themselves before sleeping.

As with computers and other gadgets, we all know that too much is bad, but you may need to enforce your view.
When one day the permitted computer time of my son had elapsed, I told him three times to shut down his PC. Then I simply cut the electricity, so all his game status was lost. Effect #1: son went angry. Effect #2: Son now listens to me.

Good luck!

[...]. It's indeed not an easy thing to bring up a child.

Hello Wedy123, I think it is not too difficult, although bringing up a child requires devotion and sometimes gives you trouble, sure. But as the children grow, you grow with your tasks. When my wife was pregnant, I asked myself whether I was mature enough for having a child. But after child #1 was there, I never asked that question again, 'cause I was too busy

Children don't need much, only two things in my opinion: 1) the feeling that they are loved unconditionally, and 2) that you give them direction and limits, especially when they are small. If you don't teach them at age 2 that they cannot have everything which they see, you will never teach them, and they will never learn. So be self-conscious and determined.

As with reading books (the original subject of this thread), I have always loved it, and reading a book to my children reminded me of my own childhood, so I enjoyed it as much as they did.
