Do you have a child who gets confused about which shoe goes on which foot? Do you have a sticker? Then try this classic parent hack.
Cut the sticker down the centre and place one half on each sole. Now your kid just needs to connect the two pieces together, like a puzzle, before slipping his feet inside.
You can also use a permanent marker to draw two arrows pointing toward each other, an idea shared on Twitter by author Emily Oster. Or you can sketch two people facing each other so that when they’re aligned, they kiss (or give each other a high-five or fist bump — it’s really up to you).
Until your child learns the subtleties of footwear, this simple trick makes it a little bit easier to step out the door.
