My old Google account reached its' limit, so I lost a lot of images for my blog that were saved there when I deleted it. I'm actively working to replace all my images to each post starting from most recent and working my way back. I also hope to update bad links if time permits. Currently I've restored years 2014-present, I still have yet to do 2013 and back but hope to have them restored by the end of 2020.

Help for Holding Pencil Correctly - Claw Pencil Grip

My husband and I both tried for several months off and on to get my 5yr old son to hold the pencil correctly, it was a battle!  One we never won without what I'm about to tell you about.  I found out about the "Claw" pencil grips on an occupational therapy website and then was able to purchase a 6-pack for about $5 on Amazon.  Not only do they work wonderfully for Z but they are also building up the correct muscles in his hands for holding a pencil, whereas before, with his backwards fist grip, he wasn't.  He has been using them for several months now and I'm released of my constant struggle to get him to hold his pencil correctly.
