Top Quick Writing Habits Your Child Can Practice Everyday




  • Is your teenager a reluctant writer?

  • Do they get frustrated every time they put pen to paper?

  • Do you want some quick tips that can help them practice their writing daily?

Well, you came to the right place! Sometimes, teenagers do not see the importance of a skill until they need it.


For example,

  1. Complete their statement for university or a job.

  2. Start a blog.

  3. Start writing their own stories or scripts.

  4. Write a letter.

  5. Write a speech.

  6. Send a formal email.

  7. Write their essay for an assessment.

  8. Finish their dissertation.

  9. Write a presentation.


And many others.....

So it is important for homeschool and in-school students to practice quick daily writing habits.

So here are my top 6 tips on how you can help your child practice their writing every day.

Top Quick Writing Habits Your Child Can Practice Everyday

1) Read daily



It doesn't matter how long your child reads, but it does matter how often. Why not get them to read daily; this can be a mixture of novels and newspapers, it is important to get them to practice this discipline of reading daily. Even if it is a minimum of 15 mins a day, that is a great way to exercise their brain.

2) Write a to-do list





It is a simple but effective way to get them to be more organised and write what they need to do throughout the day.

It can also reduce much-needed anxiety if they know what tasks they have ahead of time.

3) Write in a diary



I highly recommend this habit of keeping a daily diary as it helps:

  • Your child to write in detail.

  • Build up awareness in their writing style.

  • Release tension

  • Become more aware of their emotions.

  • Something that is private and they don't have to share with others.

As I said before in my previous blogs, I have kept my diaries and journals since I was the tender age of 10, and it is amazing to see the evolution of my writing, embarrassing....... but amazing.


This can be a nice way to reflect on the day, just before they go to bed.

4) Write an idea bank



As children, they have so many ideas swirling around their heads, that sometimes they need a way to collect their ideas and keep them safely away in a file or folder.


Also, they are writing their ideas daily, so that helps to develop not only their writing skills but their creativity as well.

I keep an idea bank also, and it is great to see the number of ideas I have used because I have manifested my ideas into the universe.

5) Write to others online


This is similar to the pen pal idea that I had in my last blog post a few weeks ago, but it could also be as simple as sending an email or sending a message via social media.

PLEASE NOTE: Remind your child to avoid the informal text talk and try to write using full sentences. This may not be realistic for every message they send online, but they could practice on a few examples.

6) Use writing prompts



For homeschooling or in-school students, there is a bank of free writing prompts that you can get online that might offer a sentence opener to a story, where your child would need to complete the rest of the story, or complete the rest of the sentence.


They are a great way to give your child a starting point and avoid writer's block.


My Writing So Far..........How I Practice Writing Everyday




In my last blog, I have decided to share my writing journey as an aspiring writer myself. I am currently writing two books and you may think, how do I find the time to write two books?!

I am currently writing my book number 1; I write every day by spending at least 30 mins a day writing a page or two of my book.

You might think that it is not enough, but I have practised this discipline for the last three months, and I am already halfway through the book.

So this is a prime example of writing daily and how your child can reach their desired writing goal by practising just a few minutes a day!

So to Conclude,

Top Quick Writing Habits Your Child Can Practice Everyday

1) Read daily

2) Write a to-do list

3) Write in a diary

4) Write an idea bank

5) Write to others online
