If this looks familiar, here is a simple trick to help your little one get their shoes on the proper feet. With a permanent marker, draw a dot on the inside edge the sole of each shoe. Teach your child to line the dots up before putting their shoes one. If their shoes are on the correct feet, the dots should be able to touch. If they can’t touch, a simple reminder like “Did you check your dots?” is usually enough to help the child figure out how to make them right.
