Just like reading, handwriting provides a goal-setting activity that will help boost your child’s self-confidence. Handwriting opens up one more avenue of communication that allows children to express themselves.
A child that lags behind in handwriting may also fall behind in other activities that allow them to live a carefree and happy existence with their peers. We have found that children who struggle with handwriting also find it hard to master playground skills such as skipping, jumping rope and ball bouncing that require hand-to-eye coordination.
Give your child a psychological hand-up by giving them a firm foundation in handwriting that will carry over to many other activities in their lives.
