It isn’t easy being left-handed in a right-handed world. Parents don’t always know how to give guidance to left-handed children on even the simplest everyday activities as learning how to get dressed or write with a pencil when they’re approached from the “wrong” position.
Since 1992, International Left-Handers Day has been an annual event in which left-handers everywhere can celebrate their “sinistrality” and increase public awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed.
