Even if the development of modern technology allows children to have more diverse learning media, children still rely heavily on writing for learning and homework in the classroom. In addition to activating children's brains, writing can enhance children's learning-related abilities such as listening, speaking, reading and critical thinking, and can also promote children's communication efficiency.

In clinical practice, many children have incorrect pen holding posture due to tiger mouth, hand arch, and poor front-end joint stability, such as the wrong pen holding posture that wraps the index finger with the thumb. It will take more effort and time for the child, which will affect the low learning motivation. In addition, the pen will become very straight when writing with the thumb and the index finger. Children must tilt their heads to see the written words. The wrong pen holding posture is associated with errors that affect the body posture.
