My son favors his left hand while coloring (always picks up crayons and markers with his left hand, no matter where I set them or how I hand them to him). When I teach him to write, what considerations do I have to take? I'm wondering specifically about pencil grip, formation of letters, preventing smudging of words while writing, etc.

My oldest is a lefty and we haven't had any difficulties in teaching writing and such. I was more worried about how to show her how to tie her shoes lol. A lefty friend of mine suggested facing her to teach her instead of sitting next to her if that makes sense. It worked, she was tying her shoes just fine in kindergarten.
