Thanks for sharing this article. Can I ask what is the youngest age a child should start to learn how to write?

Parents should not expect young children to learn to write before they are developmentally ready. Generally, they can begin pencil and paper writing activities at around age 5. Before then, their ability to write is limited. It is better to spend time with preschoolers in “pre-writing” activities – doing the things that will improve their small muscle dexterity, their eye-hand coordination and their joy of learning. Good prewriting activities are anything that requires them to use their fingers – like stringing beads, playing with legos, play dough, etc. Parents can have their children forming letter shapes with play dough ropes, or tracing letters in shaving cream. If they want to have preschoolers practice with a pencil and paper doing writing activities, just be realistic in your expectations. The letters will be too large, sloppy, and barely recognizable. But praise your child for his or her effort! They will improve over time.
