Left Handed Kids | How to Help Them Thrive Growing up
Left handed children are indeed a blessing. But, at the same time, it can be challenging as approximately 90% of the rest of the world are right handed. So, most of the world is not designed for left handed kids. The left handed community is a minority group that require accommodations that are not readily available.
Scientists have discovered that left handedness often runs in families. So it seems that your genes may be the culprit. Someone else in your family might be left handed too. However, many left handed kids have right handed parents and siblings. How genes work is often rather unclear.
So, you've discovered that your new little one is a lefty. Chances are, it's a boy. More boys than girls are left handed, but scientists aren't really sure why.
The left handed minority group has not always been the thing to be in. Although, kids are no longer beaten into becoming right handed any more, at least not in the United States; being left handed has its share of difficulties.
Did you know that tools like scissors are difficult for left handers to use? You will need to buy your school aged left hander left handed scissors to overcome this problem. Left handed tools are not always available at school. Disney's Lefty's Left Handed Store has tons of school supplies for your little left hander.
