  • No it isn't too early. Both of you do it at the same time with a nice big pair of shoes with long shoestrings in front of you on a table or the floor. Do each step slowly and let him imitate you. Good luck! :)

  • We found a book that teaches it. He was able to put his foot on the shoe in the book and learn to tie the "shoe". It worked for him.
