Raise your hands those who like free educational games for kids! By the way, what exactly hand did you raise, left or right? After reading Graeme Paton’s article “Left-handed children ’struggling at school’” in The Telegraph, Driving Kids Team made a small ‘leftscussion’ sharing things we know about left-handed people…
- in XX century, about 10% of the European children were born left-handed
It let us allow that one in 10 kids playing online games do it putting the mouse on his left.
- there’re many famous left-handed personalities: Lewis Carroll and Sir Paul McCartney, Leonardo Da Vinci and Sir Isaac Newton, Bill Gates and Barack Obama…
We’re sure that educational games for kids favour the development of children’ skills and abilities. There’re definitely a couple of future big scientists and generous millionaires among Internet kids games’ players!
- many left-handed write with the right hand, doing other duties with the left as leading
To detect children handedness, look how kids play games online and offline and pay attention which hand is usually leads.
- some devices are usually convenient for right-hand people only: scissors, pens, knives, computer mice…
Driving Kids recommends you to check the computer mouse settings: it’s possible to change buttons’ position and to make the mouse more left-handed-friendly, online kids’ games more accessible.
- making left-handed person right-handed by force isn’t a good idea. Our handedness is connected with our psychical activity, reteaching may lead to unexpected consequences
By way of example, if you enjoy playing fun educational games like arcades “Rainbow” or “Taxi Coloring,” will you be happy if only online problem-solving games like “Bus Stations” or “Ice Breaker” were available to play? Simply put, just allow your child be himself and do the deeds as it’s comfortable for her or him.
