I taught this to my children, beginning with my first born, starting in 1973. It was an easy way to have them learn which hand was which.
“If you write with your right, then you’re left with your left. And, if you write with your left, you’re left with your right.”
The second line came when my first born Katie asked, “What if you write with your left,” to which I said, “If you write with your left, then you’re left with your right.”
Happy Left Handers Day! ~ August 13, 2013
You can assume that if you write with your write, you also lift with your right.
“If you lift with your right, then you’re left with your left. And, if you lift with your left, you’re left with your right.”
Now you know if you’re a right or left hander…
FYI, from the Left Handers Website:
We wrote an article recently on the lack of guidance on helping left-handed children given to teachers either while they are training or in schools. This generated a massive response showing widespread concern about this issue among children, parents and teachers themselves.
We are continuing with our work on this and are using the occasion of Left Handers Day to raise awareness and pave the way for issuing guidance for teachers and parents.
