This very clever mom has figured out a very simple and effective way to teach children how to tie their laces, and she’s sharing her trick with the moms and dads everywhere. In the video below, we see her demonstrate her technique and then her son tries proceeds to nail it on his first attempt. Amazing!

Watch the clip for yourself and let us know what you think of this trick. Do you prefer the old-fashioned way or would you give this a try? Over 6 million people have viewed this video so she must be doing something right. Way to go, Mom!
