ballardlm Posted August 23, 2012 Share Posted August 23, 2012 Hi everyone. I am new here although I have been stalking for a long time:001_smile: I was wondering if I could get some advice from experienced mamas. I don't know if my son is gifted per se but I am not sure what I should be doing with him. He is 19 months old and knows several of his letter sounds. This didn't freak me out but today he totally threw me for a loop. We were playing with the dry erase board (which he loves) and I started making letters. He started requesting certain letters and then he wanted me to hold his hand and help him trace the letters. He tried to trace them himself but didn't have the coordination so he wanted me to help him. Here is what I was wondering. I don't know the "proper" way to make letters and my handwriting is atrocious. Should I look through a book like HWOT and see how they form the letters so I am showing him correctly? And should I be correcting his grip yet? I didn't think I would have to worry about this until he was older but the last thing I want to do is create bad habits that we have to fix later. Oh, and if I'm just overanalyzing everything and need to chill please feel free to tell me. He is my first child and I have Young Mom Syndrome lol.
