Writing D's & B's backwards

My 6yr old son is in 1st grade.He is an A student but has a hang-up w/the letters D&B writing them backwards upper & lower case,sometime. why and why these letters. He will also write his 7,5and 3 backwards. What could be behind this?

If he were 8 or 9 I'd be concerned, but this is very common for 1st and 2nd graders. You can confirm this with your son's teacher. Don't worry about it.

The only thing you would have to look out for is Dyslexia. But if he's only 6yrs I wouldn't worry about it yet.
