From time to time, we suggest this, but it's so useful that I am posting it again. If you want your child to learn Chinese characters, let him or her type them! Sure, writing them by hand is lovely, but typing them allows a different type of memorization. Plus it is faster, so you can run through them more quickly and actually get somewhere in terms of writing things.
The goal is to get your child using and enjoying the characters as soon and as much as possible!
