Is being "behind" on coloring and drawing a symptom of something?? My 5 1/2 yr old is really tough to teach and I'm noticing that she is very careless and doesn't draw much detail to her pictures usually. Like, I had her draw a picture of herself, and you can't tell WHAT she put on paper.
I have two neighbors that have 3 yr olds and they draw better than she does. They can also write better than her. Writing is REALLY hard for us. She should be practicing her writing a whole lot more than she is, but we barely get about 7-10 words written daily.
She's smart, but has very poor fine motor control. Yes, I've done a lot to try to work with her on this stuff... we playdoh, cut, craft, draw, write... as much as we can....
I'm just curious if this could be the crux of a lot of our problems. Mom's with experience teaching kids with some challenges, is this a symptom of something I need to be worried about?
