Does anyone else have a child that reads letters upside down?

Cole fairly consistently calls 'u' 'n' and visa versa. Also, a lot of 'd' 'b' even 'p' mix ups. I don't think it's dyslexia. I can't tell whether it's just laziness or what? My daughter wrote things backwards for a long time.

 Some kids take longer then others to remember the letters & how they look. I wouldn't worry unless they get to be 12 & are still doing it.

 i had a couple tht would mix them up like that but they evenually grew or aged out of it, but i did correct the senctences so they'd see the difference each time

My daughter did that for a bit- she just had them mixed up for a while- she did straighten it out in her mind after a while though.
