Example text

You want your children to have fun with language. 17 Encourage any kind of early writing that doesn’t make you crazy, such as scribbling with crayons in coloring books, drawing with colored chalk on the sidewalk, or smearing a little colorful strawberry jam on the high-chair tray. Markers on walls and faces made me crazy, so I tried my hardest (not too successfully) to stop that. But you really want to praise and reward all other early attempts at communicating by a written form. Sure, scribbling is very primitive, but remember that your children’s early attempts at speaking consisted of that lovely, gurglely jargon.

59 As a slumber party or birthday party activity, suggest that the children write group stories, and offer a prize for the best one. I do this in class all the time, and the kids really like it. First put the children in groups of three or four. Give everyone a few slips of paper and say something like “Now take the first slip of paper and write down your favorite color. ” Or sport, or holiday, or anything. Then put all of the slips in a big box and have the children draw out as many as they put in.

Stand back and admire. But if you have a teenager who would rather take some time to smell the roses—and do some creative projects—I think that’s fine, too. Don’t push these kids into honors classes and insist that they get all A’s. Good writing takes time and emotional energy; students who are under intense parental pressure won’t have this kind of energy available. Nor will they develop the self-confidence and courage that really wonderful writing requires. Actually, I find that kids under great parental pressure don’t even have the motivation or energy to do well on regular school assignments.
