Forget Every Single Day. What if your kids wrote once in a while?
How about ever? Once? Or stepped onto a stage?
I believe I have some authority to say that Writing Every Day has an influence on who you are. Do your kids write? I’m not concerned about Every Single Day with the kids, I’m more interested that they have a voice.
Yes, these beings speak, but it’s often monosyllabic affirmations and denial. What happens when they grab a pen or a keyboard? Or what if, gasp, they’re forced to go up on stage? Or maybe just have a drama class?
What I also liked about the past lesson was that we got to express ourselves and show who we really were.
We got to express ourselves? How did this happen? Here’s a thought:
An open pathway to expression? No holds-barred opening to express what a kid might otherwise think is a closed door?
What if kids wrote? What if they were on stage? What could happen?
