Are your children ready to learn how to tie their shoes? Are you having a hard time teaching them how to tie their shoes?
The reason why these parents find this shoe tying method as one of the most effective ones to teach their children on how to tie their shoes is because it doesn’t require their kids to hold one thing while manipulating the other (a great advantage if your child is having any dexterity problems or gets easily frustrated doing fiddly things).
I have been working at a kids’ shoe store for over 10 years now, and we are one of the best children’s shoe stores in the country that specializes in fitting children with special foot needs. We fit children in supportive shoes and we provide orthotic fitting as well.
Children who wear orthotic can really benefit from wearing shoes that come with shoelaces, but most parents are skeptical of providing their children with shoes that come with shoelaces until they are ready to tie their shoes.
If your child is having difficulty learning how to tie his or her shoes, there is a particular shoe tying method that is proven to be the easiest and the most effective one.
Start by inserting the tip of the shoelaces in the top eyelet (shoe hole) of the shoes. Don’t cross the shoelaces just yet (take a look at the picture below for clarification).
As you can see we already created two loops or the famous “bunny ears” in a very simple and effective way.
Have your child grab each of the “bunny ears” and cross them (it will look like an “X”) just like the picture below shows.
Pass one of the bunny ears through the hole (as shown in the picture below). Grab both “bunny ears” and pull.
Make another not and you are all set!
The shoes should be tied now!
There might be several reasons why your children are not ready to tie their shoes and they go from problems with dexterity to getting easily frustrated doing fiddly things. No matter what the issue might be, now they can learn how to tie their shoes by following three easy steps!
