Agreed. You may start with getting your child to form a sentence based of anything he sees in his daily life.

Good question! I also been through this stage trying to teach my children how to write a good essay. However, I am not a English teacher and got limits to teaching correct English grammar. So what I do is I sent him to writing classes instead. My child actually did improve in writing. He have to write lots of essay to get better at it. Hope this helps!

One of the best ways for your child to improve their writing is simply by teaching them to love reading. Reading is great because it gives them plenty of good writing examples to soak up and learn from. Reading is also a good way to increase their vocabulary and that is key for improving writing skills. The more your child reads the more they will learn about how sentences work together and the stronger their essay writing skills will be.

Agree! Same in my case. It’s too hard to teach compo writing so I rather leave it to the experts. It takes the stress off the relationship with the kids. Sometimes when I do give them my take on their stories, they still feel I am judging them so nowadays I don’t even comment much. Fortunately they have been doing well.

I am letting my child widen his vocabulary first by reading good novels and I even ask him to read the newspaper. Then I will explain to him what he had read and I will let him express his thoughts verbally. Afterwards, we will write our thoughts on the matter we had discussed and I will check what he wrote and give feedback on how can he improve his essay.

One of the main challenges of parenting is awakening the child’s desire to learn, explore, discover, and express. Sure, we can leave the education part to the teachers and the iPad, but is that the right solution? No! Sometimes, parents have to interfere. It’s their job to be the first teachers their children will ever have.
