Left-Handedness Is Natural and Normal - Let It Be!

The handedness of a person is determined by their genetic make-up, not the environment or learned behaviour.

Always allow the child to explore their handeness for different tasks. Remember, some people have mixed dominance so they do different tasks with a different hand preference.

When handing an item to a child, place it in the centre so they can choose which hand to use. If a child is struggling with a new task when using one hand, suggest trying the other hand to see if it helps - but don't force the issue!

Above all, don't force a child to be what they are not.

Let It Be!
