Wisdom for my Son No. 18

When trying to drive a small nail it may be difficult to hold it the traditional way, between your thumb and index finger, while still efficiently striking the nail and not your knuckles. Instead, hold it between your index and middle fingers with your palm facing you and your knuckles against the surface. Firmly but gently tap the nail until it can stay in the surface by its self then move your hand away and drive it in the rest of the way with consecutively stronger swings. Also, hold the hammer near the end of the handle and not up high near the head.
