I have a 5 yo ( 6 in Jan ) high spirited girl who has two very older sisters (19, and 21), who are in and out of the home, but obviously shed their share of influence over her. She, 5yo, has been asking to "write" for 2 years now, and I have been holding her back due to her age. We are entering the school year tho, and I am anxious about whether or not to formally introduce letters to her. Her older sisters, in their best efforts to "help" have been providing words for her to copy, because she is so adamant about writing.
Any advice is much appreciated.
I am very familiar with waldorf having raised and schooled my two older daughters in waldorf.
