Scissor grip help

Recommended Posts

DD is 5.5 and is a strong lefty. She holds her scissors correctly as in she places the thumb in the top and her fingers in the bottom. She cuts well and can cut out objects and cuts shapes (hearts, circles, squares, triangles, diamonds, etc.). However, she holds her wrist oddly while cutting. Instead of having her thumb facing up while cutting, her thumb is facing down. It's as if she twists her wrist the opposite way that most people do while cutting. I've tried to correct it, but she says it is painful. She has special left handed scissors.

Any tips? Worth correcting?
