On and kun readings

I get confused when reading kanji Q_Q When do you know when to use the on reading of the word, and when do you know when to use the kun reading? How do I know which is the right reading when the dictionary says there is more than one on or kun reading?

    Unfortunately, it's not that simple:/ I'd say the best way to learn is keep practicing by reading books with ふりがな (furigana). Here's a good link I found on On and Kun readings: http://japanese.about.com/library/blqow44.htm
