looking for suggestions for my 4.5 year old DS. He is not interested in the least bit in coloring/drawing using markers/crayons or anything. he loses interest in side walk chalk. even finger painting he gets bored with easily.
honestly, I gave up having markers and/or crayons in sight because all they do is get thrown or swiped off the table hever any interest in them...and I found myself getting frustrated with the fact that he can't/won't write yet..and my instinct is to force him to do it....which I know is not the right thing to do.......like all I want him to do is to sign his name on a greeting card for example...and ends up being a fight
He goes to PreK and lots of kids his age can already write their names, etc....and the teachers have to help my son through the process.
I guess it's cuz he is an active boy....not interested...whatever.
I just want to know---is this normal?
when did your boys start to take an interest in writing/coloring and what did you do to help them? my DS won't start kindergarten for another year.
