My son Elias is seven years old and is naturally left handed. Through teachers advise, I made the decision to have him write with his right hand as I was told that he showed stronger writing skills with his right hand. three years later, he has never developed his left hand writing and has never totally mastered his right hand writing. My personal feeling now is my conflict with not knowing weather we should just keep him working on his right hand writing or his left. He eats with his left hand but shows no clear dominance on anything else. My fear is that he not develop clearly his sense of left or write (strength). His third grade teacher told me that what ever hand he writes with at the end of this grade will be the hand he will should continue with. I'm torn in not knowing what to do?
