Hello everyone! I need some advice please.
I'm kind of torn between thinking it's ok and maybe there is something that needs my attention... Anyway, here is our story:
My son does not like to do things the way I tell him, especially when it comes to "art" projects. It's always been like that and I've tried again and again throughout his life. Just yesterday we sat down and I had a little pad with some "educational" games and riddles that I thought might be fun for him. In this case it was a puzzle. He could have just connected the two pieces (it was a 2 piece puzzle), but he requested to cut them out. Fine, I gave him a scissor. So, it's probably not the best example, but what he did was not cut along the edges of each picture (they were drawn in little squares) no, he needed to cut out the actual animal. Of course they were hard for him to cut out and he cut of the tail of the fish and decided he was done. As an end result, he never did the actual exercise, I had a ton of little pieces of paper to sweep of the floor and he was frustrated.
To give you an overview of his abilities:
He can draw an ok circle, nothing else that resembles anything. No faces, no cars.
He can cut straight lines fairly well, but no curves
Is this normal? I can remember 2 year olds (girls) that were drawing perfect circles and triangulars on the pavement..
