What age/ grade did your child learn to tie their shoes? Please don't bash, but my dd is almost 7 and almost out of 1st grade and still doesn't know how to tie her shoes. She accellerates in every aspect of school and is at the top of the classs, but for some reason shoe tying just isn't her strong point. IDK maybe I'm just a horrible teacher. I always thought it was something they learned in Kinder...but they never did cover that! LOL And now, almost all kids shoes don't need to ever be tied! She has a pair of Sketchers that just slip right on and never come untied. She has zipper shoes, sandals and little slid on Vans. Any pointers on how to teach kids how to tie their shoes?
