My son is left handed, which is why I read the article, he isn't just left handed he is profoundly leftie.
I knew pretty much from his birth that he was a leftie, born when I was in my twenties and I am right handed, his dad was left handed so maybe he gets
it from him.
What's bizzarre is his little sister....took longer than most children to decide which hand she was and in the end school forced her to pick her
hand...her right hand, because it appeared she had more control over her pen movements, but she is left footed, in that she rides her scooter
"goofy" just like me.
There is one interesting area that my son will at times ick his right hand to use...when sucking his thumb, for some strange reason he has never had a
preference when it comes to his thumb, so he would quite happily suck both which is strange as most kids do.
I remember reading or watching something once, years ago relating to theories of why there are left handed people and one proposition was, all left
handed people had a twin, which didn't survive, it probably has been discounted now, but it is interesting that women over 40 are more likely to
produce left handed offspring, as over 40, female bodies can go into overdrive with egg production, as a last ditch pro-creative attempt, as a
consequence they are more likely to have a twin pregnancy.
