I loved to draw as a kid and have looked forward for so long to having my own kids drawing me pictures and hanging them up on the refrigerator and all of that. But my kids have no interest in drawing at all. It makes me sad. My daughter is only 2 so I'm not concerned about her yet. But my son is 4 and still won't draw. I asked him to draw a person today and he said he can't. He won't even try. Sometimes he will have me draw things for him, but he won't do it himself. If he colors a picture, he takes one color and scribbles it across the entire page then he is done, just like my 2 year old. I'm teaching him to read (he is a smart kid despite what it sounds like) and I would like to teach him to write as well, but he fights it and won't even try. I even have to constantly remind him to hold crayons right and not in his fist. Any suggestions? And should I be concerned or not yet?
