hi Aravind Nagareddy! I understand your concerns. I assume your child to be around 4plus. Aravind may be he is just not ready to hold a pencil. please don't force him to hold a pencil until he is physically ready for that. u could make use of thick crayons, make him write on sand, or in a plate of rice or day or with dipping fingers in paint or with chalk on a chalkboard or with thicker colourful marker pens on a white board or with a magnetic pen on a magnetic board. All this should help him to enjoy writing and learning. also u need to work on his grip by making him do exercises which help in gross as well as fine motor development . for instance paper crumpling wherein he can tear of paper and make small balls out of it, throwing and catching a ball in the air, squeezing and stretching play dough, separating 2 different pulses,using tweezers to pick up pulses, open and close bottle lids etc. Aravind make teaching learning an interesting process and do not just restrict to pencil and paper. In Day to day chores he can learn so many things for instance stacking bowls, collecting plates and counting these, separating different coloured clothes and making a pile of those, filling water bottles and counting these etc. hope this helps!
