No matter how we look at the invent of smart phones and laptops all over the place, there is always need for us to do the things that is right and that involves teaching the kids to have a good hand writing. Right here in Africa, kids that are still in primary school and even up to the University level still make use of the pen and paper when they are in school and such kids should it be that they have not been taught the need to practice good handwriting may end up not doing the right thing on that.
Also, you always have to leave a written note when you are going to one function or the other and this is one of the ways that they can check how good that you are when you are writing with pen and paper. Supposedly that you are someone that doesn't care anymore how good your handwriting is, then this is going to bring a lot of issues to your personality.
So, I think there is need to have improved handwriting as there is always a likely hood to make use of it in the future.
