What does it mean to have an unusual pen grip?

What does it mean to have an unusual pen grip? Topic: Writing skills middle school students
June 16, 2019 / By Dianne
Question: Throughout all my school years, I was the only one in my classes that holds a pen differently. It's hard to explain, I hold it between my index and middle finger and the thumb just rests against the structure of the pen/pencil. If I hold it like other people, I cannot write straight, my hand shakes and it just feels uncomfortable. (I used to always get picked on for this, even the teachers would look at me surprised). I'm also ambidextrous too, sometimes when I'm drawing, I will switch hands without even thinking and sometimes draw things using both hands without thinking.

It just means when you were learning to write, you learned holding your pencil differently than the other students. In a meeting, the occupational therapist (work to improve fine motor skills, including handwriting) had all of the teachers hold a pencil like they were about to write and then walked around looking at everyone's grip. I can't remember what she specifically said, but I remember her telling me my grip was different than usual and that it wasn't a big deal. If you can write well holding your pencil the way you do, don't worry about it. And my friend who is ambidextrous says that being ambidextrous means you use more of your brain than other people. :)

Hi Born_Sinner7, Hmm.. interesting name, "born sinner" I guess you are a "bad guy" in your eyes so you decided to declare it to the world. I am going to share a secret with you that many are not aware of. Most people survive through life, they drift through life without any real goals, awaiting for something they can respond / react too. You seem to be reacting to your past. Can you change your past? Instead of reacting to situations in life, you want to create your life and lead from creation. Believe it or not, Born_Sinner7 you are a Creator! Mark 4:35-41 Jesus calms the storm. Did He freak out by the storm? No, he said what He wanted and commanded the storm to be calm and it became calm. Your "storm" is obviously your parents and your past growing up with them. God is Love (1 John 4:8) Begin all your creation with Love. Give love and it will be returned to you. Create a Vision board what you WANT to happen. Be Grateful for what you have in your life (write them down). Each time you speak with your parents, show no anger or resentment towards them. They did the best they could with the knowledge they had. Perhaps they didn't want you to make the same mistakes as they did so they tried to guide you. Forgive them. Satan (or Negative energy) always wants to pull you to the point of your past, creating misery, frustration, anger, resentment, etc. When you see yourself going down that path KNOW that the negative energy is pulling you in that direction. Be happy with your life. You have an amazing wife, an incredible son and an awesome family. Make this your focus, forgive your parents, let the anger & resentment go, release the negativity and create for yourself a loving life. Affirmations are good to say. You are saying them now in the negative. Turn them around and be sure to use them in the NOW such as: "I am very happy with my incredible family", "I love my parents. They did the best they could" "I am grateful for such an fantastic wife and son!" Give love without any reward. Write some inspirational notes and place them on car windows; sharing the love. Imagine this person reading this message. He / She might be having a horrible day and just a little happy message might make their day. When you give out love, you will get it in return. Do not tell anyone you are doing this or that will be your reward; your fame. I would highly recommend reading "Why Quantum Physics Do Not Fail" and also purchasing Sara book 1, 2, and 3 on audio. It's a children's story, but very easy to follow and both will show you a different way of thinking and living your life with love in your heart for everyone! ... Continue creating a Wonderful Life! God Bless Jark

Right there with ya buddy. I'll never forget it the day I got home from bootcamp on 7 days of leave, out partying late with old friends getting some much needed relaxation, I get a phone call from my mother at 11 stating that I was out ruining my life and I had 1 hour to get home or I could just find a new place to stay... After making the life bettering decision to join the military... No "good job!" or "were proud of you!" just more assertion of control... I saw somewhere in the bible 'honor thy mother and father' made me question religion and whole lot more about this world...

my parents r kinda the same way. my dad is extremely judgy, sensitive, and power mongering. my mom just kinda tries to convince me to follow his direction which sucks that I don't have that support but they do help me out financially a lot. I think that at a certain age, and it's around our age (i'm 27), u gotta take a revolutionary stand for a resolution. my sister did this around age 25. it was rly intense but she stuck to her decisions and through lots and lots of tears, pretty much just said "deal with it". it takes balls but it's important.

Hey, at least your parents didn't just sit all your shyte on the side of road and leave you in the streets to suffer and die right?! let's just face it, parents, all of them, are nothing but cruel little animals, loveless beasts. Supposedly they won't be forever though and it's a learning experience.

Legally I don't think there's anything you can do. If you can prove harassment then you might be able to get a court order. But to be harassment it must be extreme, and it's hard to prove. The mother has some very serious and very deep emotional problems. You can't fix her. So the only thing you can do is deal with her. There are ways to HANDLE a person like this. I suspect you already know some ways to do that. The most important thing is to remain calm. If you get upset or angry, then she's going to immediately over react. The natural thing to do is to get angry at her. But that will never get you what you want. You need to fight the impulse to be angry, even when she's angry or when she does abusive things to you. There are some self help books and web sites that can help you with this. Check out a book called "stop walking on egg shells", and I think there are now web sites and videos to go along with the book. Don't mistake my book recommendation for a diagnosis. I have no way of knowing what kind of mental disorder this women has. But, even though the book is written specifically for borderline personality disorder, many of the techniques can be applied to almost any situation. Good luck. You need it.

Since your son has full physical custody of the children then the only person she should be calling about the children is him...All the court order requirements are between your son and her.. So you have no legal obligation to even speak with her at anytime if you do not wish to do so... Simply tell her to stop calling you and call the father... If she continues then take your cell phone with all the texts and incoming calls list to the police department and file a criminal complaint against her for Harassment, then file a petition with the court for a restraining order which means she can have no contact at all with you nor can she come within a certain distance of you (usually 250 feet). If she violates the restraining order she goes to jail...
