Jonibee Posted August 29, 2012 Share Posted August 29, 2012 I knew it was an issue when he picked his first crayons at age 2 or 3. Now he's in 4th grade. Grrrr! He wants his paper straight up and down. His print and cursive are straight up and down. If I make him slant the paper properly, his print and cursive ends up slanted to the left, which annoys me. He gets frustrated with pencils because his hand smudges everything all over the paper by the third line. He's a boy and hates washing his hands just because he had to write something. :tongue_smilie: He hates writing in pen because if he doesn't hold the pen correctly, the ink doesn't flow out right -- and then he can't erase and he hates mistakes. This is my last child - number 6 - my first lefty. I am looking for advice please. This is a battle I've attempted every year and the fact that my son still does not write in cursive tells you who is winning this battle annually. This year it is THE hill. :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
