Please do not think you have to constantly stimulate your child or be more "productive" in engaging him. When my kids were this age, they love nothing more than digging into drawers, boxes, cupboards etc. These are great learning experiences.

Hi all, I agree that the computer may have negated the importance of good penmanship, but I feel it is important for other people to be able to read what you have hand-written in a message or postcard.

In fact, some top schools actually get the students to pen their personal statements in their own handwriting during the application for Direct School Admission. Guess, the handwriting is one way the school can tell the attitude and maybe character of the student. I recall that RGS girls in the past, used to have a special form of cursive writing. From the writing, we can even tell that the girl belongs to that school. i wonder if it's still true today.
