shouldn't it be "escribes"

No. The question is asking how the name of your father is written (spelled). So it takes on the form of "se escribe _ nombre". Just like if I wanted to ask you, "How do you spell/write the word happy in English?" it would be "¿Cómo se escribe la palabra 'happy' en inglés?"

okay. How about asking how do YOU write it. As in I write it in cursive with a crayon, he writes in blood, but how do YOU write it. Then I think it would be le escribes, yes?

"escribes" was accepted but I wish I had come up with "se escribe." I think it's a better answer.

¿Cómo escribes el nombre de tu papá? accepted 10/16/2018. So when is reflexive required, or is it always optional?
