I'm a righty.I remember being at " catholic school" and whenever I would go to use my left hand the nun would pop it with a ruler. Are you a lefty or a righty? Some people have to actually learn how to write again with the opposite hand because of an injury. That would be very hard.

I guess that old "Nun" just didn't have anything better to do with her time. I hear that leftys are very smart.

I am righty, but I try to write when I was younger with left hand.total disaster. I go on with my right hand as it is ok like that. I don't think it is wright thing to force a kid ,especially, to write with right hand, when he/she feel is a lefthanded person.

I didn't think it was right either. At that young age, all I was thinking about was the pain!

I am a righty, but I can write, not so neatly with my left hand. I taught myself and now it is actually legible.

I'm a lefty. When I was growing up, people would tell my mother not to let me use my left hand. There was something "not quite right" about it. Some even went so far as to suggest hitting me if I used my left hand! Amazing! Such ignorance! I am pleased to say that mother didn't listen to them and let me use the hand that I was meant to use, which is my left hand. I have tried to write with my right hand but it is very hard to read it so I don't do it much.

I am right handed as well. I read somewhere although i am not sure how true it is that right handed people live longer than left handed people. It may be true or it may not be true, but the bottom line is I am right handed and I think that is all that matters now, LOL.

I am lefty. The teachers tried to change my hand, but I refused. My father's teacher had changed his and he never could write that well. I can do some things with my right hand, but don't ask me to write with my right hand. It looks like child's scribble.

I'm the same way,as far as doing certain things with my left hand I can,but not writing. You can read it,but just barely..lol
