Engage Them In Regular Reading


The most important activity you can engage them in if you want their writing to improve is reading. The more your child reads, the better a writer they are going to become. It is truly amazing how much of a difference this can make, and it’s the kind of thing that you are going to find quite easy to bring into the daily routine. Read with them, buy them new books on a regular basis and talk about books with them, and they are going to become avid readers in no time at all. Their writing will soon improve.



Use Writing Worksheets


Another great way you can help your child to write better is to use writing worksheets with them. There are many kinds of worksheets you can look out for which are going to help here, but the main thing is that you are using them regularly and encouraging your child in them every step of the way. If you click here, you can see an example of the kind of writing worksheets that your child might benefit from using. These can be especially helpful if your child is stuck on a particular type of writing skill.



Provide Them With Exciting Writing Implements


You know how it is with children: in order to encourage them to improve in something, you often need to make that thing exciting. The more exciting you can make writing, the more likely it is that they are going to want to practice it, so this is something to bear in mind in particular if your child seems nonplussed around the whole issue of writing. Giving them plenty of colourful pens and pencils, nice paper to write on and so on, are all going to help you out here.

Persist


Remember that, as with anything else, it might happen to be that your child just doesn’t have an innate ability to write that well. That doesn’t mean that they would never be able to improve, it’s just that they are not starting from the same position as some other kids. You therefore need to ensure that you are persisting with your child, as that is going to encourage them to continue trying themselves.



With these simple tips in place, you should find that your child can improve their writing significantly. That will be an important skill for the rest of their lives.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair.

Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
