Does your handwriting look like your parents?
January 25, 2007 11:44am CST
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 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?

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.

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).
