Kid Blogger

I was watching a video on YouTube earlier on a channel called “How to Homeschool”. Hey, even we veterans can use some tips at times! This particular video is about encouraging a reluctant writer by allowing them to blog. Notice I said, “allowing” them to blog, not forcing them to. It has to be something they are interested in for it to work.


Manboy happened to be watching over my shoulder and said, “I think I’ll start a blog!” First thing I sent him to a free blog writing course site. I wanted to make sure that he knows how to be safe while writing a blog. His blog can be found at:  Adventures of a Teen Boy.

I’m excited to see how this can help to improve his writing skills!

    I have never thought of letting my son blog. Maybe that will help him w/ this writing. As he HATES to write. I mean HATES it. We fight often over writing. I have tried letting him pick a subject, giving him a subject, giving him a picture to look to describe even sit looking out the window and write about what you see. He still fights me. I think some of his issue is actually using a pen to paper. Wonder if typing on a blog would make a difference. Mmmm you got me thinking. Thanks for the idea.

    Thank you Lil Mamma for your comment. Glad to have given you more “ammunition” for getting your son to write! Hope it works for him!

    If he is into comics, super heroes, or such, that would make a fun blog for your boy who HATES writing. The big key is finding something they WANT to write about. They can add images or veideos, write poetry, write songs, create new comic characters and develop a storyline…
