Holding a pen
Holding a pen correctly requires strong finger and hand muscles. Most children don’t have fine motor control or strength to hold a pen until they are 4 years of age. How to hold a pen can affect a child’s motor/joint development. Therefore, it is very important to correct a poor pencil/ pen grip earlier rather than later. A functional pen grip will allow hand and finger muscles to move freely, which can help your children’s handwriting skills.
