Wrong or Right?

Jake says the way I hold a pen / pencil is wrong.

He says you should hold it with your thumb and your first two fingers.

I like using my ring finger to guide and my whole hand to grip.

Is there really a right or wrong way?

I also noticed last week that both of the girls write the same way.

It made me smile.

We totally forced Brenden to learn to hold a pencil right. I hate to say it - Jake's right. However, whatever works for you obviously works. I wouldn't worry about it now. Brenden couldn't form his letters properly and a lot of that was how he chose to hold his pencil.

BTW-if you do decide to fix the "problem" with your girls it is easier to start with a big, fat marker. :)
