Academics are important for the child’s growth. The important aspect is to write well. Writing has to be taught to a child in a likeable manner. Initially the child may be given clay molding to do. Once the interest to create is instilled writing becomes easy. Use thick crayons to help them do the strokes like slanting lines and curves. Slowly they can be shown alphabets and simple strokes to do the straight lines and slowly progress to running writing. The exercise books available in the stationery marts are also devised in a systematic manner.
