Right, Left, or ??
« on: April 16, 2017, 07:06:41 PM »
I was watching my two year old Great-Granddaughter "writing" today and noticed that she was using her left hand.  Later while eating, she grabbed the fork with her left hand clearing demonstrating to me that she will probably be left-handed.

This made me curious.   ???

What is there to be curious about?
The common theory is that the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body and vice versa,
therefore the kid is right brained.

I am definitely ambidextrous. I can write forwards or backwards (legibly) with either hand.

Sounds like goats are good swimmers, too :)

They actually made me stay back a grade in school because my handwriting was so terrible.

I have two sons, and one is a lefty.  Two out of five grandchildren are lefties (one boy and one girl), one in each boys families.

My daughter is somewhat a lefty and somewhat ambidextrous. My nieces son is also. Good thing for him. Poor kid just found out he has cancer in his hand and will loose most of it.  :( He's a big time baseball player in school. Taking it all pretty hard.

Sorry to hear that Lee.  I'm right handed without a lick of ambidextrous in me, really hurts when wrenching or working in the shop  :-\.

We were all born left handed but only a few of us were smart enough to stay that way, That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :D I remember having to use a fountain pen in school, I poked holes in the paper because I was pushing not dragging it and smudged the ink with the heel of my hand. What a pain. My dad liked it though, I could drive nails in a corner he couldn't reach.
It's a good thing I can hunt and peck on a keyboard, I can't write legibly to save my life. My first teacher was constantly on my case. My grand mother told me she was a lefty but a willow switch across the knuckles in school taught her to conform.

I'm right handed but I can hammer with either nearly equally as well.  My son is right handed but holds his pencil more like a lefty - hooking his wrist around and writing from the top.  Looks odd, can't get him to hold it like anyone else.  When he is not in a hurry, his printing is spectacular - but normally worse than mine! :D

The question presumes hands. Trees, goats and groundhogs may take offense.
