    Default When do kids learn how to tie their shoelaces?

    My daughter is 4, should I start teaching her now, or is that too young?

    I bought my son a book that had the laces attached to teach him. Most shoe shops also has a handout about teaching kids to tie laces, which has lace attached too. I have been trying to teach my son for 1 and half years now, hopefully he will get it soon. He is 6.

    Dd1 was able to tie them properly by herself when she was 5 I think.

    My 6 year old can't tie shoes, but none of her shoes have laces.
