I personally had massive doubts about my ability to play lefty, being right handed/footed in everything else. But after trying it out I definitely find it much more comfortable than shooting right. Being able to stickhandle with your dominant hand is a godsend, and you can always increase the strength in your left arm to improve shot power.
This ^^^^

Your opinion should have no barring on your child's shot hand, let his natural ability decide what he'll shoot with. There is a ton of variables and there is no science to it. You simply need to find what his natural choice is and let him go with it.
