My 3 year old daughter is learning to write her name at nursery at the moment. If you write her name for her E L L A she will copy it perfectly. If you then ask her to write it herself without copying she'll write the word and letters back wards . She'll start with a backwards E on the right hand side of the page and continue to the left hand side. She's left handed and I'm right handed and I'm worried that I might be contributing to this situation. Her father and her brother are both left handed and I'm wondering if I should just step back from helping her with her writing. Or is there a bigger problem that I should be worried about. Would appreciate any advice.
