Controlling light pressure (when the pen barely touches the writing surface) is important for producing fluent handwriting and minimizing hand fatigue.
The development of control over light pressure is a gradual process that requires time and practice. In the early stages of learning to write, many children struggle to control pressure appropriately. They often apply excessive pressure to maintain control of the pen, which can lead to tension and fatigue. Once the writing process is automated, the focus can be placed on pressure adjustment.
If there is persistent high pressure, observation of the movement must be considered, as a relaxed pen and hand posture support a natural writing motion and minimize hand tension.
