Born as the "digital generation", our children have become so dependent on electronic screens, keyboards, and iPad to learn, with fewer chances of writing by their hands. In this situation, handwriting skills, which seem naturally develops by age growing, can be a challenge for some children today.


A common example would be the incorrect pencil grasp/grip, observed and concerned by many parents. Despite times of practice, even with additional pencil grip tools, there's still no significant change in their child's weak handwriting. From an expert's point of view, this may result from fine motor skills which are not fully developed to support their handwriting.


Let's think back, we often offer our heartfelt compliments when seeing someone's good handwriting. On the contrary, imagine when you see your child's scribbled homework, you will inevitably worry about if his/her academic performance will be negatively impacted by the poor handwriting.


Handwriting is a key ability that helps children succeed in school and close links to their self-esteem. Children who write well usually leave a better impression on teachers and peers around, which could positively impact self-esteem and social quality.

Key Takeaways:

  • Learn about handwriting skill set and how it impacts children's brain development
  • Find out the underlying reasons for poor handwriting and signs to identify
  • Clarify common myths about writing skills in the digital age
  • Receive practical strategies to support your child's handwriting development
