Writing troubles? Try this.
When faced with a writing assignment, many students have a hard time getting started, coming up with ideas, and getting ideas out of their head and onto paper. To get things moving, offer to scribe for your child. Without the burden of writing, he can just brainstorm and speak his ideas without encumbrance. Once he sees that he can get started and that he does have good ideas, he’ll gain confidence and will eventually be able to do it all on his own.
