Being a righty, left handed people have always been a source of intrigue, I had a friend at school who was left handed, and every now and again I
would prcatice trying to form the written word in my left hand.
Fast forward a few years, and my son is left handed, right from the get-go, he was born with pronounced head turning to the left, to the point where
he had a physio referral, to try and get him turn to the other side a bit, his handedness became total confirmation at 6 months old, when he grabbed
the pen out of my hand, and held it properly in his left hand, trying to make marks on the paper, and yeah bascially a leftie through and through.
My daughter on the other hand (oopsy pun time), would use both until she was about 4 and a half, which usually handedness is decided a while before
then, I would put the pencil down, and allow her to pick which hand she wanted to put it in, but she would use both, so I asked her which felt more
comfortable, and she pointed to her right, but when she picked it up in her left I would ask her "Why ?" She said because she wanted to ?! Well in
the end she plumbed for being a righty like me, so its going to be interesting watching them grow, and see whether any talents match up, and what
their stregnths and weaknesses are.
