    What obstacles do you have in teaching writing to your kids
    My biggest obstacles while teaching writing to my kids has seemed to be performance anxiety for mine. My younger boy can spin a tale like no one I have ever heard before and he loves story telling. My older boy is intelligent but is very harsh on himself, convincing himself he cannot do things because it’s not done perfectly the first time. If I ask him to write more than two sentences he shuts down basically. My daughter is a hard worker and understands how to write but she has no motivation to. Two kids are 11 (older boy and my daughter) and my youngest is 8.5

      Thanks for sharing. I plan to cover some ideas to help overcome those struggles. Hope you can make it to our workshop

  2. Jayjay says:

    I struggle with getting her motivated! She gets bored easily cuz she is so SMART!

    • Kerry Beck says:

      I will remember that as we go through the workshop. There are some fun ways to teach writing and hopefully motivate your student.

  3. Robin Billings says:

    My biggest obstacle to teaching writing is me! I don’t like to write reports, essays, or any kind of formal paper.

    • Kerry Beck says:

      I think you’ll find some specific examples to help you & your kids. Hope you can make it to our workshop tomorrow.

  4. Carri Walker says:

    My biggest struggle is having issues with writing myself. I know what I want to say but getting it from my brain to my paper is a real struggle, so I’m less than enthusiastic when my children have to write. I want them to be able to write well with no anxiety over it.

  5. Therese says:

    My biggest struggle is helping my 10 year daughter who has speech and language delays as well as motor skill issues among other developmental delays. I am somewhat at a loss on how to break down the steps of writing into smaller skill sets to provide prompts to help her tell a sentence and then a story without having her write things down. Plus I have an older son who is definately a reluctant writer or should I say avoider (he sure knows how to disappear fast, usually find him in the garden checking over his plants).

    • Kerry Beck says:

      I hope you can join us on the workshop today. I’ll be sharing specific activities to help break down writing assignments, as well as ways to encourage writing.

    My biggest issue is having patience. My child does not like to write. He is perfectionist!!! So the writing is a huge effort for him because of a letter does not look the way he want it to be, he is frustrated, if the word is not spelled correctly, he is frustrated…

    • Kerry Beck says:

      Patience can be so difficult. Thanks for sharing and I will try to share some ideas. One thing I remind myself is looking for “progress in the process” You might encourage your child in the process (instead of perfectionism).

  7. Tina says:

    I think my only problem right now is getting into the workshop. I have many suggestions, I’m just not sure which will work or each situation.

    • Kerry Beck says:

      I apologize for the technical issues this afternoon. I am working on the replay and will give the workshop again tonight. My sincere apologies.

  8. Both of my daughters love to write. They have great ideas and imaginations for the fiction stories. They aren’t happy about writing research papers, and also do not like editing.
