I'm just wondering if anyone pays attention to these things or what your child can/can't do at a certain age. I just started thinking my fourth grader and first grader both do not know how to tie their own shoes. (mind you I don't think either of them have shoes with laces) I know I have to get that accomplished this year. Mostly they are pretty independent in most things...just got me thinking, have you forgotten, missed or at what age do you teach things like that??
I also have to teach my first grader his phone#, address, and all just have'nt given it much thought till now. Any suggestions?What else should they need to know skill wise? (not academically)
