How to make my 4 yr old kid(Aiden) write.

4 year olds are developing their large muscles, not their small muscles. They also must develope a hormone which enables their pupils to adjust to the written word. This happens about 5 and as you know boys often physically develope a little slower than girls. ( explains why girls do so much better than boys the first 4 years of school). He physically isn't geared to write. He is geared to run, jump, climb, etc. Do him a really big favor, don't start him in school until you have to. Early socialization is NOT good for children, it makes them peer dependent which is the number 1 cause of drug use in teens. And it is better to be the big fish in the pond, especially for a boy. I don't care what the school tells you, if he gets held back, it will affect him his whole life. I started school at 4. School was easy for me, but the pressure came in high school when I emotionally wasn't mature, and I made some decisions I probably wouldn't have were I a year or so older. If you want your son to love and excel in school, don't push him before he is ready. Help him blossom into it.
