DS1 is in Grade 1 and we are working with him to help him learn to tie his shoes. So he isnt very good at it just yet.
He did swimming today and when I picked him up he shoes were untied. I asked about it and he said that they have been untied since swimming (in teh morning) and my immediate thought was 'How dangerous as its a tripping hazard!!' and 'why didnt anyone help him tie his shoes'?
The parent helpers at swimming didnt help and he asked his teacher to help tie his shoes and her answer was 'Your parents should teach you how to tie your shoes'
Surely it is dangerous for the kids to be running around with shoes untied??
Is it policy that they are not allowed to tie kids shoes?
Just want to know as I am going to approach her tomorrow about it.
