    DS was 6 or 7 when he finally got the knack, was hard work though, he would have gone through life with the toggle on his laces if left to him!

    DD is 5 and has learned how to do it over the past few months. I think DS was 6 when he mastered it.

    DS1 was about 7. DS2 is 7 and he can't. I doubt he will ever learn though.

    None of my kids can tie shoelaces. I haven't brought shoes with laces though. Might be good to start teaching them though.

    None of my kids can tie laces, they all wear shoes with velcro.

    Lol! Sorry
    Yeah anywhere there, if it's a struggle leave it awhile and come back to it. I have 4 kids and I think they have all been about 5 when they learnt. 4 is not too early though especially if she is keen to do it

    I was a Prep teacher for many years and I don't think I came across many 5-6 year old children who could tie their shoes! It's a surprisingly difficult skill! I now teach Grade 1 and there are still many children who can't tie their shoes.
