August 13 is International Left-handers day. I'm married to one left-hander and the mother of another leftie.Lefty Zone Left-Handers Day blog image

It's estimated about 10 percent of the world's population is left-handed.

Not long ago, school teachers still "corrected" left-handed children (often by hitting their hands!) to write with their right hands. Now there are books and teaching tools designed to help foster effective left-handed writing skills.


As many tools, doors and buildings are designed for right-handers,lefties are sometimes unfairly accused of being clumsy. (Righties should try using left-handed scissors for a taste of what life is like for lefties.)

On Left-Handers Day, it's fune to see how many people you know who are left handed. Famous left-handers include Albert Einstein and Oprah Winfrey.

The Left-Handers Club is sponsoring a survey of different groups and workspaces to find out whether certain areas attract more than the customary 10 percent of left-handers. 

To celebrate, the group offers Free Downloads of posters for the Day to create a personal "Lefty Zone" and raise awareness of some of the challenges and frustrations facing left-handers.  

Left-handers are invited to try Brainteasers and the MENSA quiz for High IQ geniuses for fun, too. Many left-handers are good at these.

Here are links to the survey:

Thanks for post!!  Never heard of a leftie day!  My mom and daughter are both lefties.. My mom was in a situation where they attempted to correct her left handed deficiency to no avail.  My daughter was lucky and did not suffer such fate.

Our youngest is a lefty, although he switch-hit in baseball.

Robin,

We are in the same position. It is sad what they did to lefties in the past.

Mel,

Being a switch-hitter gives your son a lot of flexibility and an advantage in sports.

Morning Michelle.

I'm right handed, as is my wife.  All of our parents and grand-parents except for one were right handed.  All of our kids are lefties. Interesting

Good morning Michelle. I am a leftie to write and eat. The rest is rightie. And my son is the same. My grandson is showing the same inclination. Enjoy your day

Hi Michelle - it's a shame to think people were discriminated against because of their dominant hand.

Yes many southpaws have advantages when it comes to sports.

Hi Michelle, I didn't know there was a day for the "lefties" in our lives.  I have two sisters - in - law that are left handed.  They are always picky about where they sit when we have large family get togethers.  Can't blame them for that.
