Distiguishing Left and Right

Dyspraxia is a terrible curse (my father suffers from it - actually he has it, the rest of us suffer smiley - winkeye) and he has great difficulty knowing, quickly, which is left and which is right.

Researcher 177704

When I was a child, I had trouble remembering right from left. One day i discovered a tiny birthmark on my right hand, which I hadn't noticed before. I called it 'the right birthmark' and always knew that whichever side the birthmark was on, was right. Even now, when i find telling left from right simple, whenever i see the birthmark i think 'oh, that's my right hand'.
