If there is one area that homeschooled parents tend to doubt themselves in, it is in writing instruction.  For one, we aren’t sure that we, ourselves, were adequately taught about good writing.  Do any of these questions sound like something that has swirled around in your brain from time to time?

  • What if I don’t remember enough about writing to teach it?
  • How can I evaluate something as subjective as writing?
  • How do I keep my child from getting his feelings hurt when I criticize his writing?
  • What do I do if my child is reluctant to write at all?

One option for parents who feel daunted by the task of teaching writing at home is Time4Writing.com.
