Hey, freelance journalists, here’s a ‘newsjack’ idea for you:
Have schools’ attitudes about left-handers changed?
When my dad grew up, schools forced retraining of ‘southpaws.’
Or tried to, until they came up against Gramma Mary. 😎
She intervened and embraced ‘left-handed.’
I suppose it was her equivalent of “God doesn’t make junk.”
I’m right-handed and broke my arm when I was a kid.
Learning to write with my left hand? Oof!
Going against the natural inclination is hard work, I can tell you.
For all the moms, dads, and teachers out there who let their ‘lefties be lefties,’ I commend you.
