If your pencil grip from your childhood is not causing hand fatigue, slowed writing, pain or discomfort, or illegible writing, you probably do not need to change it. Your hand does not feel comfortable with a tripod grip because you have used the old grip for so long. TO change a grip after all these years will take time and patience. You may want to have an occupational therapist look at your hand to find out why you chose to use your old grip and give you specific suggestions on how to change it.
