Question: What are the lyrics or how does the song go that guides little kiddies in tying their shoes? My 3 year old wants to learn and I think the song would be a great way. All I can remember is over something, through something, something about a rabbit?!??!?!? Help me!

Let me begin by saying I am someone who does work in a childcare setting. I am going to share with you some of my resources and I do hope it helps you with this frustrating skill. I know when it came to teaching my son I got very frustrated with it, but I finally have a friend help him learn. The reason she could help him was they were both left handed so he kept trying to do things different than I did it. Introduction Many children get frustrated when trying to learn how to tie shoelaces. While there's no miraculous solution other than patience and lots of practice, there are ways that you can help your child acquire this useful skill. Instructions Difficulty: Challenging Steps 1 Step One Wait until your child is ready. Most children develop the dexterity needed to tie shoelaces between the ages of 4 and 6. Girls are often ready to learn slightly earlier than boys. 2 Step Two Make sure your child knows right from left before you try to teach him how to tie his shoes. 3 Step Three Choose one method of lace tying, and teach it consistently. Make sure that everyone who may be trying to help your child learn this skill is offering the same method. Otherwise, he may get confused. 4 Step Four Make up a game or poem to help your child remember the necessary steps. Criss Cross Tying Shoes (tune: Splish Splash I was taking a Bath) Criss Cross and go under the bridge Then you got to pull it tight. Make a loop but keep a long tail That is how to do it right Then you take the other string and you wrap it 'round the loop Pull it through the hole Now you got the scoop Criss Cross and go under the bridge (this is where you tie the loops together) Now you made a Double Knot! Sad Rabbit Once there was a rabbit that was very sad because his ears were so long and narrow that he stepped on them all the time. One day a fairy landed on the bunny's head. She lifted up the bunny's ears and crossed them over like an x. Then she put one ear through the bottom of the x and pulled. Next, she made each long ear into a loop and made another x like before. She put an ear under that x and pulled again. From then on the bunny remembered how to tie his ears into a bow, and he lived happily every after. Teepee Tying Story A Native American made a teepee (pull lace up and cross one under the other) and it collapsed! (pull first "knot" down). So he started another, (make first loop for bow) and he took this string and went around it, (wrap other lace around loop) and went inside, (push lace under new loop) and there he had it! Two Tents! (pull loops for bow) . This story is great for a group activity where the children can help one another follow the story, and if you make pictures to go with the story the kids can follow the steps by themselves! The story also helps to limit the child's frustration with learning to tie because they are helping the Native American to build a teepee and if they fail it is the Native American who needs more help! A Story For Tying Shoes My Shoelace Blues I've tried and tried to tie you, shoe. I've never done it yet. A loop that flip-flops on the floor Is as close as I can get. I've practiced on spaghetti. I've practiced on the mop. I've practiced on my sister until she made me stop. So here's the loop again, shoe. I'll hold it with my thumb. I'll wrap the other end around... And yank it into bows. It's done Gold Shoes Paint an old pair of sneakers with gold spray paint and lace with bright colored laces. All the children will want to practice tying their shoes. 5 Step Five Make sure that you and your child are side by side rather than opposite each other when you demonstrate. That way he'll be able to copy your movements rather than mirror them. 6 Step Six Give your child lots of praise when he gets it right

Stacy Originally Answered: Question for mommies with babies that spit up.alot?
We went through this. Our daughter had a mild case of acid reflux. When it was active, she could do a very good imitation of Regan from the exorcist. She was in pain & uncomfortable. We felt so bad for her! We changed her from Similac Advance to Similac Sensitive; it didn't really help. We then changed her to Isomil (soy). That helped. We also feed her sitting up & keep her elevated for at least 30 minutes after a feeding. The swing / bouncer are great for this! Keeps your hands free so you can get things done around the house. Pacifiers also help with reflux babies. The constant sucking motion helps keep the acids in the stomach. We also invested in a sleep wedge (link below). This helps her while she sleeps. Reflux babies can have a tendency to have post nasal drips which also upset their tummy. The sleep wedge helped. You can also try smaller feedings, more often. Burping your little one after every 1 -2 oz also works. (we do it after 2 oz). We haven't had any reflux flare ups in months! When was the last time you changed her formula? It can take up to 2 weeks for a formula change to really take effect. Worse comes to worse, ask your pediatrician for a referral to a pediatric gastroenterologist ... they can definitely help! Feel free to email me if you have any further questions! Good luck!

The rabbit goes over the fence under the fence around the fence and through. That's how I taught my daughter. I dunno how the song really goes.

As you said, you don't want it to all crumble - I'm sorry, but I think you better prepare for it to do just so. I'm 19 and have a 5 month old (unplanned) daughter. You need to get your life in order... ask yourself HONESTLY: -Can I afford this baby? (a baby is unbelievably expensive, that $10,000 is not going to go far, trust me) -Can I continue with my education? (if you want to provide a decent life for your baby you need a decent job) -Do I have support from my partner? (lots of males split when they realise how hard it is) -Do I have medical insurance? -Do I have family support? (your family becomes the most important thing to you) -Do I have a stable place to live? -Have I got the patience for a baby relying on me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for the next EIGHTEEN YEARS? (Baby sitting for your cousins is NOT the same as actually raising your own child.) -Do I have a car and license to get myself and baby around? -Can I really give up my freedom, looks, friends (coz trust me, you loose a LOT of them,) buying things for myself, alone time with my partner? For me the answer was yes to all, I did have to postpone my university studies, but my partner owning his own home and business has meant that we have not had to struggle with finances. Being a mother is lonely, unacknowledged and constant hard work, people who aren't entirely positive that they can cope - should not have children, regardless of their age. That being said, keeping my baby was the best and most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life and I wouldn't trade it for the world. It's all personal decision and do what YOU want to do, because whatever choice you make YOU are the one who will have to live with your decision forever. My life is a bit of a struggle some days, but I just look at my beautiful daughter and know that THIS is what life is all about. Other than sharing my story, there is no advice I can give you other than to expect the unexpected. =)
