Aspasia Posted February 21, 2012 Share Posted February 21, 2012 (edited) My dd loves handwriting and picked it all up quite easily. Unfortunately, and I know this sounds bad, she loves to write in her spare time as well. The problem with that is that she's developing some bad habits--like writing things backwards (2, 3, 7, 9, a, p, etc). It's driving me NUTS! The handwriting worksheets she does every day pale in comparison to the amount of time she spends writing "letters" to her friends and writing "stories" about her drawings, so they don't stand a chance at overpowering the bad habits. I hate to restrict her access to all writing tools, but I'm on the verge. How do I fix this? ETA: I meant that it sounds bad that I call her writing obsession "unfortunate"--I don't actually think it sounds bad that she likes to write in her spare time. :) Edited February 22, 2012 by infomom Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
