Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The problem your daughter is having might just be a behavioural disorder. some times children do not pay attention to what you are saying. Still it is better to consult a neurophysician to check for any muscular or neural weakness.

You need to observe her activities for some time. Perhaps she is lefty, so prefers using left over right. Or may she is doing some things with right hand ( as she has been taught) and some with left (which she prefers). Watch her playing, that is when you will get the right observation. If you find any thing unusual, make a visit to a neurophysician.
