Getting your child off on the right foot in writing will save heartache and power struggles later on. Why not begin by giving your child a bag full of fun writing supplies? You could add such things as a variety of fun pens, pencils, and erasers, a lamp for his/her desk, different types of pads of paper (a teacher supply store is a great place for this), stationery, envelopes, stamps (or stickers he/she could pretend are stamps), a notebook for a journal or diary, and a child’s dictionary and thesaurus (check with Scholastic). After the initial gift, you could continue giving one fun writing gift for birthdays and holidays. After giving the gift, model how to use it. The time will be well spent. Have fun!
