  • Yes it is genetic, but can skip generations. My husband is left handed, I am right handed. Our older two daughters are right but we believve that our youngest (3) will be left handed.

  • DH and I are both right handed. I THINK DS and DD1 are going to be right handed, but they're still too young to know for sure. DD2 is only a year, so she's definitely too young.
