On Facebook news-feeds we have seen and read about the doing away with the teaching of cursive writing. Personally I believe cursive writing allows us to have our own individual signature. Some one posted that doing away with cursive writing would lead to our signing with an X. It is so difficult to see things that means so much to our identity being removed and each day we are faced with more changes to our traditions.
It is sad to loose another way of life that has just deep roots to our memories and identity. I would like to challenge us parents and grandparents to not depend on our schools for the training of our children. We need to stand up against the machine and be heard and not stick our heads in the sand. Let's take up the slack.
Let's turn this negative into a positive.
I propose we make learning cursive writing a game. Make a game of learning a secret penmanship. Remember when we all learned how to speak Pig Latin? I have fond memories of my daddy telling us kids the legend of how it was used and we all went around with our secret language.
What ideas do you have for keeping and making traditions that last?
