My four-year-old is very obviously left-handed. We've suspected that he's left-handed for a couple of years now, but now that he's starting to learn to write, it's obvious. Every time he tries to write with his right hand, you can just tell that he's uncomfortable, but when he switches to his left hand, he holds his pencil more naturally and is able to write and draw. His father and I are both right-handed. I certainly don't hold my pencil correctly, and I don't even know how to correct my son's pencil grip because it's all backwards to me.
So, I need thoughts/recommendations on how to help my left-handed kid with his fine-motor skills when it's all backwards to me. If you are left-handed, any skills that you found especially difficult to learn because they were designed by and for right-handed people (my mom is left-handed and points out that spiral-bound noteboooks are the bane of her existence) would be good to know, or if you're a right-handed parent of a lefty any tricks or pointers you have would be greatly appreciated.
