Try to give it a break. The more you push the more your child will resist. Try something innovative that enables him to practice concepts

Hello, if your 5 yr old is not interested in writing, give him lots to draw and scribble in plain drawing books or on chalk board. Also, check if he has pain in the hand while and after writing. What is his preferred hand to write? Is he left or right handed also matters. But, first to get him interested, let him draw free hand, even if it's scribbling. But, only with chalk or crayons.

Dear Friend,
Ideally writing should be introduced only after age 6 yrs. Sadly the education system here puts a lot of stress on written work right from early years.
I can totally understand you. You need to identify why your child isn't interested in written work. Whether he is finding the formations difficult, whether his grip is improper causing difficulty in writing hence disinterest or whether his muscles aren't strong enough.
Once u identify the reason, u can work on the writing part in a variety of creative ways mentioned above. You can reduce the time spent in writing to remove boredom. for eg. In schools, children are expected to write a whole page for practising letters. You could break it to two lines at a time. And keep writing time short. Make it a fun time.
Sometimes larger muscles like shoulder and arm muscles need strengthening.
Exercises like push-ups, wheel barrow walking, and wall push-ups have shown results in good writing skills.
Best wishes!!!

Thanks dear kaushal ji.
