Will they respect my wishes?

I've been trying to work with my son to hold a pencil right. I'm looking for a grip for him that is small enough. He has really small hands and fingers. Amazon has medium and I haven't found any in stores. He's starting pre school in September. If I ask for them to not correct how he holds a pencil, will they respects my wishes?

You can ask, but that doesn't mean your son will comply.

Why are you asking them not to correct him? I'm confused.

Why would you not want them to correct him?

Why do you think your way of holding a pencil is better than anybody else's way?

Why wouldn't you want the extra help from the preschool. It's not their first time at the rodeo. I kinda have a DIY idea--you know those long skinny balloons they use to make balloon animals? If you fill some of it with play sand and then tie it around the writing utensil he will be using, it will adjust to his grip and the rubbery type material should reduce it from slipping.

Their job is to teach how to hold it correctly.

Because he can't hold a pencil the right way. I really don't know why. He has such a hard time. He does fine the other way

I doubt it, the whole point of preschool is teaching him how to do things.
