Tutor helping struggling child with math and science
Earlier, we discussed how to encourage your child to read. Writing can be just as difficult to encourage. With journaling, your child can choose her own subjects to write about, which helps her feel more engaged in the activity. If she is struggling with ideas, these tips will help get the creative juices flowing and the pen moving.

Favorite Songs

Music is a medium that is easily relatable, and so a potent source of material for writers of all ages. Have her make a list of her favorite songs and write about the feelings and moods they evoke in her. Does this song make her excited? Or this one make her sad? Have her describe how she feels and what about the song makes her feel that way.

Favorite Movie or TV Show

Everyone loves movies and television. Ask her to discuss her favorite scenes, characters, or lines. She could try writing a backstory to a movie or a new episode of her favorite show, and act it out with the family.

Dreams Are Stories

Another rich topic is dreams. Tell her that instead of forgetting about her dreams, she should write about what happened first thing in the morning. Exploring these messages from her subconscious helps her learn more about herself and provides a new subject every morning.

Interactive Writing

Engaging your child in the process of writing can also grease the wheels. Try switching places while telling a story. Your child can start and you finish, or take turns after a few sentences each. Get the whole family involved to create a real adventure.
