Does your child know how to hold a pen or pencil?
That’s not a silly question.
Researchers are finding that some children enter school without the strength or flexibility to properly hold a pencil.
Although there are several ways to grip a writing tool, strong fine or small muscles are needed. Scientists have observed that children who have spent hours with technology during the early years are the most likely to have trouble maneuvering a pencil.
Give your child a head start. At least sometimes, substitute a pencil for the tablet.
