According to a new report, kids are so used to using iPads and computers, they can’t even grip a PENCIL anymore.
In order to write legibly, kids are taught to grip a pencil or pen with their thumb and first two fingers.
Which is easy for most, because they’ve been doing it their whole lives.
But more and more kids are struggling with it, because they don’t have the strength and dexterity in their hands.
The only way they can write is by gripping it with their entire fist like a caveman.
Researchers think it’s because they just don’t get as much practice and aren’t building those muscles up.
Instead of doing things like coloring, they’re using apps.
