[blindkid] Working on our technique!

One thing that has helped Hank (9) is to hold the cane at his side instead
of centered on his torso, griping it like it is a shopping bag handle.

When he was holding it centered, if the tip got caught up on something
(crack in the sidewalk, grass) the handle would jab him in the stomach which
made him cranky about using his cane.  When the handle is to the side and it
catches on something, his arm just swings back a little and isn't a big
deal.  It may not be textbook perfect technique but it works for him and has
cut down on a lot of grumbling.
