Another "Neatness" Observation

#2 - The second big revelation was the QUALITY of work was better when she wrote neatly.  In other words, when she took the time to write neatly, it stood that she also was more careful to follow instructions and to think each problem through carefully and thoroughly.  So, in my opinion, neatness led to better quality work.  Sloppy handwriting wasted time.  I found that I had to keep calling her back to correct careless mistakes and ill-thought-out answers.  It is always better to do it right the first time.  I want my children to apply this principle to schoolwork and ALL work.
