Miggsy Shoelace's Back to School Guide to keeping shoelaces tied.
The start of school. A milestone event when kids either get super excited or upset, and parents get anxious. All involved need to work hard to contain that energy without having a total melt down and we've found that preparation is the key to surviving those first weeks.
We understand the anticipation and have been through it with our own kids, and although we can't help with the nerves, we can definitely help take one of the worries that parents have off the to-do list, by doing what we do best and keeping your child's shoelaces tied. This means less stress for you, for the kids and less time for the teachers, spent tying shoelaces.
The majority of inquiries we received in January and February are regarding how we can help to keep young children new to school shoelaces tied. This is because the reality of having young ones move into an environment where they need to be independent is a bit of a shock to the system for the kids and parents alike. We have frustrated parents contacting us to discuss the best options for their child and tales of kids having melt downs because they can't keep their laces tied and shoes securely in place, so in anticipation of the coming year, we've created this Back-to-School Guide on Keeping Shoelaces Tied so you can keep stress levels down and be well prepared for what's to come.
There are a number of factors that you should consider when you're looking for a No Tie or Keep Tied solution. For example, does your school allow shoelaces without a bow, or is the uniform guideline strict? If your school has a strict uniform policy, you'll need to check whether or not our solutions will be allowed.
We also have options that are 'No Tie'. This means that you can fit elastic shoelaces to your childs school shoes which then turn them into slip-ons. No tying required. Be sure to check your uniform guidelines to make sure these solutions are allowed.
At the end of the day, each child has different needs and you'll be the best judge of which solution will help to make them feel comfortable and confident when they go to school. The goal of having a No Tie or keep tied solution is to give your child independence and relieve teachers of the task of having to tie shoelaces all day.
We suggest to take the following into consideration when deciding on an outcome.
