Does your handwriting look like your parents?

One thing I've noticed with handwriting, at least for people in the Philippines, that the mom's handwriting is usually similar to the daughter's handwriting. I've seen this with me and my mom, my aunt and her daughter and so on... why do you guys think this is so, when in fact, it wasn't my mom who taught me how to write. Just thought I would share this with you guys.

My handwriting looks nothing like my parents. My brothers however looks just like my fathers. My dad was a pattern engineer so has very nice handwriting I just have never seen any like his until my brother got older.

My hand writing doesn't look like anyone elses in my family. I t is actually strange what traits we inheirit from our families. One question that has nothing to do with your topic. But why did you post it under the Photography interest? Or is this another glitch in the system?

My handwritting is not as pretty as my moms. Mine looks like chicken scratch.

unfortunately both my parents have poor handwritting and so do I. Mine looks most like my mothers which is at least readable. My dads handwriting I can't even read!

I'm not from the Philippines nor am I a female, but my Mom taught me how to read and write. When I was younger I used to make fun of her style of mixing cursive and common letters (print) in her style. She was a little confussed with my style becasue I loved the structure and neatness of the cursive portions so much, I made it my own. I eventually forget how to print common letters. When I came to Canada my teachers thought this odd. But sat me down and taught me how to print (common). Now my mom makes fun of me because my writing is almost identical to hers. I think this happened because she spent more time and interest with me in practicing than my Dad or teachers.

I think since I can't read the writing of my parents but my this could mean that it doesn't look alike. Never watched it.

not really. my mom's is big and bubbly and my dad's is almost unreadable. my handwritting is just simple. not like either of them since you can read mine. my parents didn't teach me how to write either.

Not at all for me. My mom has very neat writing. My dad can hardly write at all. I have messy writing that I often write out of order, and it's not easy to read. But unlike my dad, I can write quite a bit. I'm slow at it though. And I can't seem to get the hang of cursive because I don't write the letters in order (although, thankfully I have no problems with that when typing in either the Qwerty or Dvorak keyboard).

it seems strange how that can be right tho if they didn't teach us how to write but my writing is not like my parents, it's just my own! :)

My hand writing is neat like my mothers but its way smaller. People always complain they can barely read my writing.
