The way you can provide good writing all this time is to hold the pencil part with your thumb and index finger.
While the three fingers are on the back of the index finger following the direction of the hand. Then determine the distance between the fingers and the tip of the pencil, and the pressure from the pencil to the paper is not too strong and not too weak. Start with this movement for several times until the kid understands how to hold a pencil.
