A right-handed person shooting lefty is actually the "right" way to do it. As others have said, your dominant hand should be at the top of the stick because the hand at the top is what is controlling all of the movements you make with your stick. The bottom hand is really just there for leverage, not really anything that requires dexterity. Think about how little the bottom hand moves when stick-handling, shooting, or doing anything else with your stick. All it does is grip and slide up and down ( ) the shaft ( ) while the top hand does all of the complex work. Having your dominant hand at the bottom of the stick is not going to give you any more power.

I'd say let your kid do it the right way... it'll probably pay off.
