"Write" Of Passage: The Importance Of Teaching Our Kids How To Hand Write



There are things our kids can do in life that feel like nice little rites of passage. Maybe it's something little, like getting them into crafts, so they are able to keep themselves occupied without television or video games, but at the same time, we can feel that we're fighting the battle against the digital world.

So, what are these benefits, and how do they help our children develop more in a computer-dominated world?
