Inspiring a child to write can often seem like a difficult task. The right encouragement might help them to enjoy writing as a creative outlet. Letting the child choose a subject of their choice goes a long way to fire up their enthusiasm for writing. Some tips to help motivate them are:
Find an online audience
Setting up a blog for your kid gives them an opportunity to write for a real audience can make them more engaged with the writing process. If they seem to be at a loss about what to write on, try to prod them towards writing about family events like birthdays, holidays, and celebrations and so on. Slowly this will build up their confidence and enable to write about different topics.
Support a cause
If your child already supports a particular cause, they can write about it as well. Getting children involved with their favorite causes through writing can help them unlock their creative talents.
Use games to get them writing
Children can be encouraged to write about their favorite games like Minecraft, Mario and so on. They can reviews about their favorite games or even write instructions on how to play them.
