Teaching a child to tie their shoes can be frustrating for both parents and kids. While some little ones catch up quickly, others need more time figuring it out.
Luckily, one mom from Alberta, Canada, has a hack that can be your ticket out of frustration town. Her almost two-minute tutorial will certainly help your kids tie their own shoes in no time.
Some kids have trouble with tying shoes because of motor skills or coordination challenges. Others can’t remember the order of the steps or struggle with following directions.
Just like how some kids have a hard time learning new things, some parents are not great with explaining things as well. So one mom decided to come up with her own system that made more sense to her and her son.
Kristin Johnson of The Unstoppable Mother blog was looking for a way to teach her son to tie his shoes. He was struggling with the complicated bunny ear, loop-de-loop system and his mom wanted to help him out.
The former physical education and math teacher came up with the simple shoe lacing method more than a decade ago, when she worked with kids with autism and Asperger’s. She decided to share a video tutorial on Facebook Live, where she didn’t expect it to get more than a few likes from her mom friends.
In the video, Johnson demonstrated the four-step shoe tying tutorial herself before handing it off to her son. The young boy then easily completed the steps and tied the shoe himself.
The steps are quite easy. First, make that first tie, as usual. Second, make another tie, like the first, but keep it loose. Third, put the ends of the laces through the loop, one at a time, making two bows. And lastly, pull the bows tight.
