It is an important life skill that needs to be developed amongst children because it can really boost their communication skills, self confidence and self esteem as well.
Unlike the popular notion, writing is not a stand- alone activity but an amalgamation of several activities required for a child’s development. It is a social skill and a means of self expression comprising keen observation, imagination, storytelling and much more.
