Importance of cultivating a good handwriting

January 24, 2011

There is a saying that “first impression is the best impression”. This saying holds true when it comes to a person and also with the handwriting of a person. It becomes all the more important to have a neat and clear handwriting when the mode of communication is mostly by mails and paper and the people who are interacting do not meet.

Handwriting is an essential skill for both children and adults. Even in the age of technology, handwriting remains the primary mode of communication and knowledge assessment for students  in the classroom. Cultivating a good handwriting is not an over-night change but a process which has to be started from a very early age.

Every child spends most of its time writing and reading in school or at home doing home-works, assignments, and projects. If the handwriting is not clear, then the teacher has a tough time trying to identify what is being written. It also becomes a problem for the child themselves when they have to read it back and hinders their study efforts.

Handwriting becomes all the more important in a child’s life when they get older and move to higher education. Universities abroad required students to give a handwritten essay to seek admission in their universities. A good handwriting creates a good impression in the eyes of the evaluator.

Handwriting is important in schools because the school setting gives students the chance to practice their handwriting, as well as grammar and spelling, so that they will be able to use handwritten communication as part of a business and social etiquette.
