I tried traditional methods at first, but after lots of frustration I talked to a lady at a convention that was selling "Without Tears" books. My daughter has an unusaul, thumb-grip when she writes. The rep. explained that my daughter's condition was hereditary (my husband has it) which helped me not feel guilty or that I did something wrong. She also said that the brain is not necessarily capable of forming exact details in penmanship at early ages. Some kids don't develop that fine motor skill till later. And so many moms are flipping out because their child writes messy! I adopted a much more grace-based mentalily and as long as I saw effort and improvement, I learned to be satisfied. I bought their books and it was a whole new world!!! No more frustration and my daughter learned easily. She is now 16 and is finally interested in making prettier letters. She may never have beautiful handwriting because of her grip, but at least she knows how to write and read both print and cursive. Their method looks very plain, but as the kids get older, they adopt a style they like (slant or not). Boys like it because they use tow trucks and easy visuals - not very busy looking. I'm done with worrying that someone is going to judge my child by her handwriting. She turned out to be a great student! I'm so happy that I found "Without tears" books and I recommend them to everyone that asks.
