Do You Have a Reluctant Writer?
Letter writing has virtually died. Email is faster and cheaper. Sending a letter or card shows a different level caring. Sending a letter to a family member might be enough to motive your children to express their ideas and feelings in writing.
At this time, many grandparents and elderly family members are isolated because of the shelter-in situation. A note from a grandchild, niece, or nephew would brighten their day.
I can't speak for others, but I really like getting my grandchildren's notes and personal work. I would love to get cards created my grandchildren. Personal notes mean so much more than store bought cards.
Encourage your children to send letters and cards. They will make someone happy, and at the same time, they will hone their writing skills.
