Everything is done online. We type using computers. Email has replaced surface mail. Is there need to learn good handwriting?

Whether they need it or not my children learn handwriting and practice it every day.

How do they take it? It is not a bother to them

Yes. Paper and pencil to leave note for family, scribble phone numbers, grocery list, signature.

That is scribbling and does not need good writing

@stbrians You do have to be able to read it later. True, it doesn't have to be a work of art.

Not to mention communications skills. I need a translator when they write me in Morse Code. And some people call me The Joker.

@stbrians I know what you mean. Some people misunderstand my old school thinking.

Yes, it is basic skill all should have. What happens when computers go down and you need to actually write?

You write but the writing should not necessarily be good because it is temporally

I've read that some children don't even know how to sign their own name. Handwriting seems to be on the way out.
