My child's writing is so tiny. It's like font size 3. Will is be a problem for exam?
Does it create difficulty in reading for you? If yes, then it will be a problem. Overall, it must be readable and easy to understand.

A bit hard to read, could be due to my age? :lol:
But I tried asking my child to write bigger so many times

Hm.... then get a few more people to see if it's really too small for them. How old is your child?

I used to also tell my child he has bad handwriting; big and untidy. After a few years, somehow, his writing got better and neater. Perhaps is a teacher told him that his handwriting is too big and need to write smaller lol. Guess I needn't have to worry about it after all coz all in time will change.

Writing may seem simple but it's actually multi-tasking. The mind dictating what to and how to write, the hand forming the letter/shape and the eyes focusing on the movement. It's a different essential fine motor skill milestone for every child. I think practicing more and more will help. And making the practice sessions more fun (at home).

yeah, bad hand-writing might become a problem because it is where a child can express his answer. He may need more practice until he gets the right stroke and it is readable, most importantly. and may be a set of "judge" (parents and siblings) can help him make it right.

Practice certainly helped my child a lot. Giving them time and guiding them can also help based on my experience. Hope this helps!

Many are able to produce great report and convincing slide presentation with digital devices, but only few need to do handwritten work/explanation in the current era.
I have witnessed multiple secondary students' handwriting when they submitted their written preferred nickname and number for printing purposes, many are bad.
I think practicing with cursive font makes it more interesting and fun.
