At what age should a child start writing?

Q: What is the correct age to make a child write/scribble(alphabets/numbers/drawing, etc.) in a note book or slate? Most of the schools in Bhopal insist on making a child write even when he joins a Play Group or Nursery.

A:A child is not psychologically ready to read or write before the age of five years, but there are large individual differences. The best option is to understand your own child's readiness level and give suitable opportunities. Forcing a child who is not ready can lead to problems.
