Do you have a teen at home who hates writing, convinced they don’t need that skill because they want to be an engineer, welder, or hair stylist? Maybe you have a kid who thinks that being a “good writer” requires the ability to write sappy poems or stories about lovestruck vampires, two skills your child proudly doesn’t have. Congratulations! Your kid is normal. Still, you’ve got a problem: if you want your son or daughter to mature an adult who is taken seriously and gets promotions--no matter the job--you need to convince them that it pays to write well.
