With all the technology and electronic devices we have today, it almost seems like handwriting is becoming irrelevant. To me, it isn't. The ability to write takes fine motor development and increased control over a child's small motor movements.
These are important skills to develop in children. Yet, I feel that less and less time is being spent on teaching children how to properly form letters and write. Do you know that it is harder to unteach a child the wrong way to make a letter than it is to teach them the correct way from the start.
