Help your child become a happy, confident writer. How To Get Your Child To Write shows you how to motivate any reluctant 7-11 year old writer and improve his or her skills significantly. It uses a unique approach, and begins by explaining in great detail how to talk with your child about his writing so that he responds positively rather than negatively. A positive attitude is essential in order to engage him with the program. Once he is genuinely happy to work on improving his writing with your help, things will start to happen very quickly.
"We have gained great results in a very short space of time."
This is a guaranteed stress-free method all the way through - for both of you. Reluctant learners do not respond well to stress. In fact, stress only serves to aggravate the situation and put further pressure on an already unhappy child.
"You have to be involved for 30 mins a day at least 3 times a week, but it will always be a happy 30 minutes, not a stressful one."
How To Get Your Child To Write is written by a highly-trained literacy specialist who works with disengaged writers from Years 1-10 and provides professional development for teachers in improving their teaching of literacy. The easy-to-follow step-by-step format shows you how to assess your child's writing at home, no matter how little of it there is at the moment, and how to use this information to get started at the level your child really needs. You are then shown how to set appropriate goals that are achievable within a few days, and provided with activities that ensure your child reaches each goal and feels successful. Each successful experience will boost his confidence and keep him motivated to continue. His content writing will begin improving as soon as you start working with him, and will continue to improve day by day as you follow the instructions. His handwriting will improve as his confidence and pride in his work increase.
"My son's behaviour has changed. As a parent, I am now learning how to help teach him about
writing. Knowing I am doing the right thing has also boosted my own confidence."
