Why not?

It never occurred to me to try this: Ken decided that since Joseph uses his left hand to write English, he can train his right hand to write Chinese. What a good idea!
Why not?
Give both sides of the brain some exercise.
In the beginning, his characters were wobbly and mis-shapen. Now they are mostly in proportion and smooth. Better than I could ever write. And it has only been two weeks or so. It's true that the only limits kids have are put on them by parents. Given the right motivation and resources, so much can be accomplished by these compact little vessels of intelligence. I'm working up a sweat trying to keep up.
