I recently had my sons 3 year check up, and the Dr wants me to go to a teaching store and get a plastic thing to help him hold his pencil correctly.
Don't get me wrong, he does draw and try to write some letters, but he holds his pencil wrong, and is not the best at writing.
My aunt ( a preschool teacher) said that she is amazed that they want him to start doing this so soon, that they work on that in preschool.
When did your kids start writing? How did you show them to hold the pencil correctly?

My 5 year old is a little slow at writing, but she has taught herself to add and subtract already. My 3 year old will look at his name if I've written it somewhere else and he can write it. Each kid is good at different things. Both of my kids are amazing at what they can do, and I haven't panicked yet. They will learn these things when they are ready. Besides that not everyone can have the most perfect handwriting. That's why doctors and lawyers have people who write for them.
