Why do right hand scissors not work easily for lefties ?
Left-handed scissors have the blades reversed so the top blade is always on the left enabling the user to see  the cutting line. The natural squeezing action of the hand pushes the blades together so that they can cut rather than pushing them apart,(this happens when a left handed person uses a right handed scissors) so the paper bends or slips between the blades.
Cutting with a pair of scissors builds strength, the action of opening and closing scissor helps children build up the small muscles in their hands. These muscles are important for everyday activities such as writing, using cutlery, brushing teeth and getting dressed.
Cutting skills take time for children to develop. Children may have the skills to use a scissors by 3 to 4 years of age, but scissor skills are not fully developed until around 6 years of age.
