Same here. I don't believe in having a naturally stronger side. One side will only be as strong as you train it to be.
If you want to use the "artistic side" as an argument, it's well known that the right hemisphere of the brain is known as the artistic side. It controls the left side of the body. That would mean that most people should be playing with the left hand at the top of the stick. Not so. Just let the kid hold the stick the way he feels comfortable with, and let him practise and train that side, instead of trying to force some pre-conceived notions on him.
