can anyone suggest a sure shot for improving handwriting. my son is 6 years old and he writes well but at times his handwriting turns really bad...

i can share the same concern, even my kid had the same prob, but over the period of time by doing consistently practice writing method helped. vacations are the best time for th same by allowing ur child practice everyday 1-2 pages. later on after 10 to 15 days u start with stop watch method by setting a time limit for ur child for e.g. in 10 mins u shud finish 10 lines but with good handwriting . If u give sometimes incentives it would also help by rewarding for his efforts. 

Keep trying u will succeed.

hi maneks,

hi jayni,

if most of the times handwriting is fine then a child doesnt need professional help for handwriting improvement. handwriting going bad sometimes could be indicative of lack of interest in work or tiredness at that point of time. if a child is not feeling interested in doing his homework he may start doodling and thats when the handwriting goes kaput. if a child starts with good handwriting but it gets poor after a couple of pages, it could mean tiredness/ loss of concentration/ pain in wrist/general body pain. you will have to observe him more to find out the pattern of bad handwriting to find out the reason. that will help u choose the plan of action better

hi! thanx! u really have a nice name.

i think u r right, it is in the later stages of his work that his handwriting fizzles out... but during exams or so they have to write long and so he has to get used to writing good.  i can wait for 1 yr without help.of course i will keep trying.

hope it works out.

hi jayni..find out how his wrist works when he plays badminton/tennis. if he cannot play after a while, his wrists need to get examined. if he gets tired after playing for a while, his stamina needs a boost up. if only sitting jobs are getting hampered, may be his posture isnt correct. also see if he can sit and draw/read well for long durations, but cannot write after a while. the pattern will help u find out the root cause.

take care :)

I agree with aanchal we need to check our childs pattern for the concerned prob and then plan out the further course of action. I was discussing the same thing with one of my friend and she also came out with this reason..........In this age their attention time is not more than 15 to 20 mins.....Keep trying......aand yes it will work out.

my daughter now in 1st standard used to have good handwriting last year ...but this year,maybe because she has to write faster, her handwriting has gone for a toss...it is sometimes impossible to read...her e's look like c's and sometimes everything looks just like a jumble of lines and curves.She even asks me how to write certain alphabets in uppercase and lower case..

We have  a  2mth duration handwriting class nearby...thinking whether i should send her there?

your inputs?

when children move from manuscript to cursive they face many issues, as they are often not taught how to join the letters. the left and right arms of each cursive letter blend in a particular way. if they dont blend arms and write each cursive letter as its taught individually, they end up writing many 'i' between every two letter. and like you mention, c looks like e, e looks like c, p may look like h and so on. so its important to teach the child how to blend the adjoining alphabets in cursive.
