How do I encourage my child to write instead of video blogging?
I see children (some with supervision, some none), who are making their own video blogs as young as 8. I have nothing against video blogging, I enjoy and follow a lot of them in YouTube. However, as a mom, I would also like to encourage my daughter to write.
She already loves to read. And I can see creativity in the way she make stories. The details on her characters, where they live, how she describes them and the conversations - they are funny.
I wish she would be encourage to put them on paper instead of a video blog. I guess maybe because she would be less exposed as a writer than a video blogger. Or am I making too much of big deal out of it?
