My son is left-handed, but does a few things right handed… He cuts, throws, and use a computer mouse right-handed… I tried reaching him to crochet, first tried left and it did not go well, next tried right and he did better, but honestly he gave up so who knows which hand he would have used…

im similar to that! when i was 8 i wanted to learn guitar but failed miserably because my tutor wanted me to do it left handed. when i was ten i tried again but i was allowed to try right handed and it worked much better!!!
