To be a good writer, you need excellent grammar, a wide vocabulary, and new ideas. Most important of all, you need practice. If you think your child could benefit from practicing their writing skills, below you'll find a few ideas on how you can motivate them to do so.

How to Motivate Your Child to Write

  1. Monkey see, monkey do. Children are pretty much a reflection of what you do, how you react, what you say, and more. For that reason, if you want them to write more, you should write, too.
  2. It's probable that your child won't want to write if they think it is a stressful activity. That's why you should keep a relaxed attitude about it: don't force them into it, and don't be too harsh if their material has spelling or grammar mistakes.
  3. Inspiration can be hard to come by, which is why you should give your child things to write about: tell them to keep a journal to document their daily life, or come up with short stories together so that they can work their imagination.
  4. Speaking of inspiration, reading is a great activity to engage in if you want your child to write more. Going through what other writers have produced will likely give them ideas and confidence to do it, too.
  5. Finally and most importantly, be there for your child: review the work they did, push them to keep going, answer their doubts, and basically be their biggest fan.
