7 year old pushes down on pencil too hard

My 7 year old apparently pushes down with his pencil too hard when he writes. Any suggestions to help him? Thanks!

Hi there! One of my favorite ways to give immediate feedback about pencil pressure is by offering a mechanical pencil. If the child pushes too hard, the lead breaks and it gives instant kinesthetic and visual feedback about pressure. Try it out and let us know how it goes :slight_smile:

Thanks so much!! I’ll try this!
