I say *think* because he does alternate which hand he uses, but I do think he prefers using his left hand.
However, whichever hand he uses he grips the pencil in a fist instead of between thumb and finger and gets very frustrated if I try to show him how to hold his pencil correctly.
Should I just wait until he's a little older before encouraging him to hold his pencil correctly and start writing, or should I persevere now i.e. when he is colouring in, drawing pictures, so that he doesn't get into bad habits?
Both DH and myself are right handed, so really not sure if we need to be doing anything different if DS is indeed left handed? Or maybe this is more about DS not being ready yet?
