Pincer Grip

This is a drawing kindly provided by "Andrea" from "Andrea's Buzzing Around:." If only I could draw like "that."

Pincer or Pincher grip definition:-
A skill that "generally" develops in infants between the age of 12 and 15 months.

Can you do it? Not "draw like Andrea" but put your hand in that position?

Many people can't or have great difficulty making the two tips touch. Sometimes even if we can manage to get them to touch, we lack the finger strength to maintain a good hold.

It can be very frustrating for everyone concerned.

How about "this?"

Of course if truth be told we don't hold spoons in a pincher grip anyway but it's a great tool to avoid getting pinched until you master it.

Better late than never. So glad we got around to it "eventually."
