Sister Bear learned how to tie her shoes this past weekend, so G took her out and let her pick a brand new pair of kicks, with big girl laces! No more velcro for this almost-seven year old!
When I asked if she was excited to tell all her friends at school what she learned to do, she replied, "No Mama, I should have learned last year"! In response to this statement, I asked our Google Home Smart Speaker, to which it responded: According to Parenting Magazine, the average age that a child learns to dress themselves is 5 years old. The average age they learn to tie their shoes, is between 6 and 7 years old.
Once she heard this, her face lit up and she began jumping around shouting that she couldn't wait to tell everyone at school... So the question here is, should I be concerned that my kid trusts the word of an electronic device over her own parents?!
Meh, oh well. At least she's proud of herself! ;)
