I have a 7 yr old, who will be starting 3rd grade this fall ( yes, you got it right, he is the youngest in the class). He is very good at Math, and reading he is already at the 4th grade beginners level. The problem is his writing, he just hates it. He knows all the basics of it, the grammar, when to use a period, etc., etc., but just does not have the confidence in doing it. I can not give any constructive criticism, because he will start crying saying,"See I told you I am not good at writing". Having said that I will also say there are days when he writes superbly with all the imagination, but it is may be once in a blue moon.
I want to work this one month left before school starts and help him out with writing,and handwriting to get back his confidence. Any one has the same problem, any suggestions are appreciated.
