We completely enjoy reading the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series because we snicker at the funny situations the Heffley family can get themselves into. Because of this, it’s likely that you’ve added every available book to your favorites collection.
I think it’s safe to say that Mr. and Mrs. Heffley are a comical version of responsible parents. One of the points that makes this series enjoyable is that Greg’s mom and dad seem clueless about what their ‘wimpy kid’ is going through. Don’t get me wrong, Mr. and Mrs. Heffley love and care for Greg very much, and it is obvious as you read the books, yet they seem to struggle understanding him.
I’m sure Greg would write in his diary that it is difficult to be a kid, especially when he is asked to be more ‘responsible.’ If Greg had it his way, his whole family should view life from a kids perspective.
What is the most difficult thing about being your age?
A focused Free Write is a strategy intended to encourage ideas without concern for the conventional rules of writing. The goal is to make writing easier and more comfortable while speaking new ideas onto a page. Remember, free writing doesn’t mean to rush or create sloppy work on purpose. Follow these guidelines:
- Write nonstop for a set period of time (5–10 minutes). Let your ideas flow onto the paper.
- Ignore the urge to correct as you write, you can always come back and edit later.
- Write what you picture in your mind by using words that describe.
- Do not judge or censor what you are writing. Allow yourself to imagine.
