Kids don't learn to tie their shoes because they have slip-ons and
velcro. In our district, kids don't spend as much time developing fine
motor skills as they used to before standardized test scores became the
most important thing on the planet. Funny. The girls' fine motor skills
catch up when the start wearing eye make-up and painting little artworks
on their fingernails! I wonder if the boys' EVER will...tying fishing
flies may become a thing of the past.
