SunD Posted January 3, 2012 Share Posted January 3, 2012 My DD has started writing letters herself, with no input or instruction from me. She is resisting my attempts to help, with all her little might. As I've read here many times regarding other children, she likes to form her letters from the bottom up. What I'm really interested in is WHY we print top to bottom. Is bottom up more likely to tear the paper or smudge? Does it make your hand cramp or is it just more likely to be ugly? If so, why don't we have those problems with cursive? And why do so many kids have the urge to write the "wrong" way? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
