She's only 17 months. She doesn't even like to wear shoes. She hates things being on her feet. She can get her Velcro ones on herself.

My son was 5 or 6. He had a hard time picking it up and I had a hard time teaching him. I am left handed and he is right handed so its not the same.

My DS is 3 1/2 and doesn't tie his shoes yet. My nephew is almost 11 and refuses to learn how...

Around 1st grade at 6 years old.  Kindergarten they wore boots and velcro shoes because as they were learning at home they weren't able to do it fast enough at school and I felt it was a burden to deal with that every day and become frustrated with it.

By 1st grade they had it down.

We live in FL so he only wears shoes that need to be tied on the weekends for sports. He wears sandals at literally all other times. He is 4 and doesnt know how to tie his shoe. I blame it on the weather lol.

Dd was 5. We worked for her for awhile on it. Dh had showed her his way, two bunny ears, LOL, and she just couldn't get it. Finally and with kindergarten looming (where it's required to know) I showed her my way. One bunny ear and wrap it around and pull it through. She got it right away. No issues. Sorry this is a basic skill that they should know. The teacher mltn has 25-30 other students, they don't have time to tie shoes, that's just the reality. This is just part of a parents job, it's like making sure your kid is potty trained before starting school, same thing.
