Buffalo Grove, IL --- As news outlets report that cursive writing is no longer required to be taught to children in many states, TheStationeryStudio.com is encouraging parents and administrators to reconsider.

"Our customers have expressed their frustration in the lost art of letter-writing," says Renee Redman, Owner of TheStationeryStudio.com. "One teacher who taught 7th grade for 6 years and then moved to the college level commented on our Facebook page that she had to re-teach cursive because her students couldn't read it and it was faster for note-taking. Another expressed her shock that keyboarding is taking precedence over handwriting."

In this digital age, the classic, handwritten letter is a piece of tradition that should continue to be taught to the younger generations so they can create lasting impressions. And, let's not forget that you can't seal an e-mail with a kiss!

According to a recent article on msnbc.com, some professors fear that cursive writing, a lifelong skill, could become lost to the American culture, making many historic records hard to decipher and robbing people of "a gift".

Computer skills are now being taught in many schools instead of penmanship and it isn't rare to see a writing class taught on computers.

This will certainly affect future generations, who won't know how to script a loving letter to a parent or grandparent from across the miles. As history proves, a crisp, beautiful hand-written letter on classic stationery is the best way to communicate from the heart.
