thank you Shikha Batra ji for your guidance.... now I feel it easy to teach her hand writing.... being mirror to her is a great idea ... it really works...

Kavita please don't make her write with her right hand. she is doing good and is not at all at a disadvantage being a lefty either at home or at school . u just need to learn right teaching techniques and make arrangement with supplies and right tools such as pencil,rulers, sharpener, writing pad, scissors etc. specially designed for them as well as make seating arrangements best suited for her. always teach her facing u , so that she mirrors u and not copies u. it's a natural dominance please don't try and change it for your own convenience. hope this helps!

thanks puloma pandey ... my mother is also left handed and she use her left hand while writing ... probably it's genetic for my daughter... problem is not why she use left hand also i don't want to force her to write from right hand... problem is i find it difficult to teach her making alphabets... she is right at her place... for e. g. if I draw suppose E .. it's like from up to down and three lines from left to right... she draw the three lines from right to left...

Hi Kavita, some kids use their left hand to write, eat and for other works. Accept your baby as she is else make her write by right hand as she small and can be taught right now but when she will grow it will be difficult to mould.
