I was talking to my best pal, K, about her daughter. She's nearly four years old and very bright. Great speech. Everything seems to be going well.
K is very pregnant right now. Her little girl is making all the right empathy noises and is proving to be very helpful at going upstairs to get things or picking things off the floor for her mum.
The main difficulty that seems to be holding her daughter back is being left-handed. She's getting easily frustrated with the whole writing and drawing malarkey and hates trying to cut things with right-handed scissors.
She's very happy about the imminent arrival of a sibling, but I predict that any frustrations with writing/drawing/craft activities will be made worse after a few months of a small baby diverting her mum's attention.
I thought this would be a good time to try and find a pair of left handed children's scissors. Have you got any tips for where I can find these - and any other tactics for helping left handed children with writing and drawing?
