I totally agree with your point. If a child hasn’t ever been taught how to do these things through parental guidance sometimes, they never learn. If they don’t learn at home they won’t learn at school. I can personally attest to how important fine motor skills are because I’m not very good at them myself despite my mother’s best efforts when I was young. At times I feel like I’ve had to teach myself everything that I know about buttoning shirts, zipping my clothes, and many other basic manual tasks. They are all things that we adults take for granted but children have to be taught and shown how to do it properly, otherwise, their lives can be very frustrating in some cases.

Great post. One thing I have learned over the years is that fine motor skills are really an important part of writing. I have a son who has been diagnosed with Developmental Dysgraphia. This means he has issues with his grasping and hand/eye coordination. He also struggles to complete simple motor tasks on time such as coloring and cutting and pasting so his handwriting is all over the place. We have some really amazing Occupational Therapists that have helped him learn better ways to hold the pencil, how to take more breaks, how to be more aware of what he is writing, etc. I am seeing improvements but it can still be a struggle for him at times.
