i am a lefty but my kids were all right handed. most if not all of my grandkids are also right handed. i have no clue how you can help yours other than to hold his hand with your writing hand and help him feel the shape of the letters. good luck!

I have 2 lefties now. The only thing I've been able to do is sit right in front of them and have them mirror what I do. They have to learn to write each letter separate because the letters will get covered up. I've also had to teach my dd to hold her arm up when she writes because she'll smear the ink on her sleeve or arm. I remember seeing something on youtube about how a lefty should hold a pencil and turn the paper. Maybe you could find some help there.

I'm a lefty and the proud mum of a lefty. My DS1 is left handed and has great difficulty forming his letters. It's made worse by the fact that they no longer teach printing first and then cursive. Now it's a mish-mash of the two which is supposed make it easier for them to transition to cursive writing. But I don't agree, especially for leftys. However, my handwriting as a child was terrible and only really improved as I progressed through high school. I don't have any advice, just wanted to let you know you are not alone!
If you find something that works well, please pass it on to the rest of us!
DH is a lefty and has great handwriting so he always tells our lefty son that he cannot use it as an excuse. No idea how to help him when he was learning since he was so ambidextrous he would switch hands every other letter when writing his name...
Both hands equally horrendous handwriting lol
Out of our first 6, we have 3 lefties!!! And both me and hubby are righties. So once, I taught the first to do it, she teaches the other two. We just practiced and practiced and it took her a lot longer to write neat than my righties. But she got it!
