Yes learning shoe tying takes time…(something we seem not to have any more)

 Every neuron is firing and wiring to be able to accomplish this new task!!! With practice (and as we know kids want to do grown up things) this child’s tongue will stay in his mouth, shoe tying will be automatic and he’ll be ready to surge forward to learn…handwriting? math facts? how to teach a younger sibling to do this? or other cognitive pursuits…Join me to give kids the right to accomplish this developmentally appropriate feat (feet?) and feel good about themselves.  Remember who taught you to tie shoes?
