Children Handwriting




Teaching children to write their names correctly is not easy.

It is not easy to teach children to hold a pencil.

Some press the pencil too hard until the pencil nib breaks.

Some hold the pencil too tight with all their fingers, making it difficult for them to write.

Some have difficulties holding the pencil steadily with 2 or 3 fingers.

Some lack the patience to write within the confine of lines and boxes.

Some lack confidence in writing, erasing what they write until the whole sheet of paper is in a mess with many holes.

Parents get unduly worried and agitated as they see the other children progressing faster.

But the moment the children can produce a decent and readable handwriting, they are relieved and easily satisfied.

Many parents tend to let their children write on their own when they see their children can produce reasonably good handwriting.

They don't realize that their handwriting maybe too small, giving an impression that the writer maybe lacking the necessary confidence to write with bigger letters.

They don't realize that their handwriting maybe too big, giving an impression that the writer maybe lacking the necessary practices in writing beautifully.

They don't realize that their handwriting maybe too skewed toward the left or right, giving an impression that the writer maybe lazy and moody.

They don't realize that their handwriting maybe too tall and thin, or too fat and small....

Handwriting is a skill that needs constant practices to perfect.

It is like music, flowing naturally from the thought.

It is like an art piece, always ready to satisfy the readers' needs.

It is like the cooling stream, urging the readers to continue reading without in any way distracted to do otherwise.

Oh! How I wish I can write beautifully, spreading and filling the world with the wisdom and knowledge of God, without bringing any attention to myself.

I still write with my fingers too low on the pencil. Good post. www.hauntedliving.today.com.

I was very happy to note that my daughter learned how to properly grasp her crayon as a toddler all by herself. I have a weird way of holding the pencil myself, but it works great for me because it doesn't cause calluses. I think penmanship is an art form. Right now I'm learning to write Spencerian style. :)
