Abstract: Writing. What comes to your mind when you hear this word? Hard, frustrating, tiring, or easy, fun, and pleasing? It depends on what kind of experiences we had in the past dealing with writing itself. The more fun and enjoyment we get from writing, the more we love writing. On the other hand, the more frustrating moments we face, the more discouraged we are. This paper tries to present some ideas that can make children addicted to writing. The central problem to be answered in this paper is. “How can we, as teachers and parents, encourage children of young ages to write?” Teaching writing to children It does not have to start from high level topics which require much knowledge and lots of experiences, but writing can be started from our daily life and simple things in ordinary life. This paper is based on document reviews and observations on a six-year old child whose spirit in writing was started since she was around 5. What is meant by documents in this case is the child's writing. In order to find more information on how to encourage children to love writing, three teachers of young learners' education were also interviewed. This paper will hopefully inspire kindergarten and primary school teachers, as well as parents, to encourage children to love writing.
