But you really want to praise and reward all other early attempts at communicating by a written form. Sure, scribbling is very primitive, but remember that your children’s early attempts at speaking consisted of that lovely, gurglely jargon.

Older kids write bitterly satiric essays that savage every adult in their life. Don’t worry when this happens.
