- Experts say that parents won't be able to determine true right- or left-handedness until a child is 2 or 3 years old, when a child begins to favor the same hand consistently.
- Also, some children may be ambidextrous (using both hands equally) until they're 5 or 6, when they finally make a choice.
- Lastly, hand dominance is greatly influenced by genetics. So, if both parents are left-handed, your child has a 45 to 50 percent chance of being left-handed as well (about 10 percent of people are left-handed).
