It would seem that what is the difference, a right-handed child or a left-handed one?
But before, all children were taught to be right-handed. I, for example, was born left-handed and remember. as parents taught to take a spoon with the right hand. I asked my mother – why? She said, they say, my dad and I do everything with our right hand, so I must be right-handed, Ukr.Media informs.
And I do not force my daughter to do anything. Moreover, I noticed that she has been trying to pick up a spoon and a pencil with either her right or left hand since early childhood. Sometimes he will draw a little on the right hand, and then transfer it to the left hand. I searched for information and found out that up to 1.5 years old, the child unconsciously picks up objects with one or the other hand, but after that it begins to be determined.
I will not reteach my daughter to perform basic tasks with her right hand. She herself will determine how it will be more convenient for her, and maybe, like her grandfather, she will write and draw with both right and left hands equally.
I also want to share a test that will help determine whether you are right-handed or left-handed by nature. According to my results, it turned out that I am 75% left-handed.
To pass the test, you need to complete 4 tasks:
- < li>Cross one leg over another. Remember the one that will be on top (this is 25%).
- Place your fingers in a lock. Remember which hand's thumb is on top (another 25%).
- Put the mobile phone to your ear. And to which ear – right or left – remember (25%).
- Put your hands forward, making a gun out of your fingers, and find any point in front of you. Without removing your hands, cover your left eye. If the target has shifted, remember which eye you covered. If the dot remains in the same place, cover the other eye and check with the same scheme (here is the last 25%). which hand you currently have better. Maybe you were reeducated too? Also, this test will make it more likely to understand whether your child is right-handed or left-handed. Take this test with her.
