It is a common phenomenon when a child doesn't recognize their own name. It is because we rarely call by their real name, but their cute nickname. So, when someone shouts their name, they feel like it doesn't belong to them. So, they just ignore it as nothing happened. Well, actually, we can overcome this case by encouraging them to write their name. Well, it is true that it is not as simple as saying, "write your name". We need to begin gradually. Here are some steps to follow:
Well, when we instruct our kids to "write your name", actually, things that we need to remember is definitely that they have to learn how to write first. Commonly, kids are developing their writing skills at the age of 4. At this age, they are actually able to write their name too. However, if the writing is imperfect like we can find mistakes or misspells there, it is fine. We don't need to panic. It is because the skills of writing in children are not fully improved until they are five years old.
It is discussed before that the children are actually able to start writing their name by the age of 4. Sometimes, it is great for us to find them developing their writing skills faster, like at the age of 3. However, this is not really common. It is usual when we find them holding pencils and doing something with their pencil on a piece of paper.
However, at the age of 3, they actually try to write just like what we do. They create a scribble that looks like a real letter just like what we write. Well, we don't need to push them too hard by commanding them to "write your name".
The development of kids actually takes some phase and time. It can't be forced since it will disturb their improvement which leads them to get into some serious troubles in the future.
