Bloging for kids

I am thinking about getting my boys to start writing.

My first boy is an introvert who doesn’t have much friends. Doesn’t enjoy reading, in fact, he doesn’t read at all unless it’s a Marvel comic or Mr MidNight and friends. Summarizes things he reads into different news altogether. Has a bad sense of written English. Proud to call himself a gamer (which he happily spends hours doing if we don’t stop him).

My second one is a lot a lot different. Full of himself with a really creative mind. The stories he make up (which are mostly lies) are believable. You will be fooled not once but over and over again.

My last baby who is 6 this year is still a baby… I’ll not include him in.

I really want them to improve on their writing and social skills. Learn more about the computer and IT world. Find answers from reliable sources over the net and not just believe in something because it’s pops out first on your search engine. And most of all, I want them to expand their mind and look at the world from a different perspective.

I’ve thought about online safety for kids and I understand that most blogging site only allows children aged 13 and above to start a site. So, I’ve decided to let them tap on my site for the space they needed. After all, they will need to go through their dad or myself before posting something.

  1. Blogging is a great way to teach reading and writing skills. You can also tailor it to the interests of each one of your children. That helps to keep them interested and willing to participate.
