but you dont do everything facing ur kid...other things like driving, cooking, etc. are done where the child can only copy exactly the arm you are using.
i'm not sure about everyone else, but when i see relatives teaching their child to write they normally sit with the child on their lap and guide them from behind...hence picking up by copying from parents.

I'm in a bit of an odd situation...
I was technically born a left-hander, and during situations I will still use my lefthand on instinct. However, in the Chinese culture, left-handed people are "bad" so my mother hit me every time I used my left hand when I was little...and through my many years of practise, I am dominantly a right-handed person. However, my left hand control of a pencil, is slightly better than most people... It is around the same situation with my feet during soccer, but I'm now dominantly right-legged as well...

I'm ambidextrous. I write, use a spoon/fork, serve in tennis, etc. with my left hand. I play badminton, hit tennis groundstrokes, throw balls(football, bastketball), cut scissors, and other things with my right hand. So I serve lefty in tennis, but play right handed. Mostly because I can't throw with my left hand. Badminton...I'm not sure why I chose to play right handed. Maybe it felt more natural? I don't remember.

No wonder you're confuddled!
Anyway there's obviously going to be more right handed badminton players. Left handed racquets have to be made to order.

Yeah, rifles and handguns sound alot better than long or short arms.

When I was taking a biological psychology course at a college, an instructor who was doing research in this area commented that "left-handed people have brain defect." We weren't sure what he meant so we responded to him with some polite laughs. He was a left-handed (he was writing with his left hand).
From what we understood from him at the time, he said some people born with certain brain defect were left-handed. But, he didn't say that they have handicap. I believe what he said was that their brains (structure) made them left-handed people. Other than that, they are just fine.

Im a lefty.. im proud of it you sometimes have an advantage over the other player when you constantly hit it towards their left and they have to go backhanded. Especially in doubles, you can cover either side easily.

reagan,clinton and current us prez bush is left handed...not bad for brain damaged people eh?

haha.. i'm a right hander.. but i've got a friend from my club who is naturally left handed, but can play right handed too.. he's annoying to play against because sometimes you don't know which hand is holding his racket.. thus you can't determine which side to pick on.. but yeah, i guess his right hand is alot weaker..

I heard a friend (who is left-handed) say today, "All people are born right-handed; only the great overcome it."

Ambidextrous too. I do some things that need more technique with my right hand but use my left hand to do the things need more strength (exp. throwing, basketball shooting). Play badminton with my right hand. But I can make a bettter clearance with my left hand than the right. Have been trying to get some practice with my left hand so that I can play both hands. Playing with both hands can overcome a major defect of badminton and all the recket sports that overusing one arm over the other makes the body asymmetrical.
I did heard of a very good ambidextrous amateur badminton player.

yes..us lefties do confuse players who are used to playing with fellow right handers....to add to their confusion..i do a quick switch to the right hand once a while when opponents shoot to my backhand in the extreme right corners.....quite entertaining and surprising to everyone around
