Handedness is just an individual thing. In fact, there are people who don't have any "real" handedness. (I'm one of them. I write with my left hand but am otherwise right-handed. Personally, I've always seen it as "Nature's perfect plan" that I write with the hand/arm/side that are my weakest; because the chances of injuring the stronger hand/arm are greater (and that would leave my otherwise un-used left arm/hand for writing). :) So 1) I'm happy to write with my left hand, and 2) I would have been happy if my children wrote with their left hand. As it turns out, all three kids are right-handed. :) That's OK. I love them anyway, and they're all perfectly talented and bright people (so they don't need to feel bad about being right-handed - and neither does that misguided, unfortunate, right-handed friend of yours. :) :) Not everyone ended up with the "Nature's Perfect Plan" when it comes to handedness. :) ).
