MicheleB Posted February 12, 2008 Share Posted February 12, 2008 Maybe this is a silly question but I'm curious... My 9yo who has some learning delays and does not handwrite well, etc., colors very nicely, in the lines and is very careful. It does take him a long time to do so, but he can and he wants to. My 7yo who seems to have *some* of the same issues as his brother, but in variation, does not color very well and seems to have a hard time staying in lines. I just very gently asked him one day if he didn't want to try to stay in the lines (wrong thing to ask!) and he said, He was (but he wasn't). He of course seemed offended.... He LOVES to color and will sit and color and draw by the hour. Is not staying in the lines possibly a "symptom" of the other issues (as of yet undiagnosed)? Is it something to strive for, or should I "work" on it? I mean, I won't stand over top of him and make him color in the lines, but if it's something we can work on, I'm all for suggestions. Sorry if this is just too silly.... I am really curious.... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
