MORNINGS are pretty busy when you have kids, so anything to make things run more smoothly is very much welcome.
And while it seems like a no brainer to us, little ones often struggle putting their shoes on the right feet – which isn’t ideal when you’re rushing out the door.

But luckily, there’s a simple hack to help them on their way to independence, which saves you and them a lot of time.
And the good news is that you need nothing more than a sticker and a pair of scissors, which you’ll probably already have.
In the clip, she said to choose a sticker your little one will love and cut it right down the centre to create two pieces.

Then, place one in each of the shoes on the inside of the sole, so they appear as one when the shoes are together.
The Australian mum explains: “The kids simply need to match up the stickers to know which shoe is which.”
And added: “It save so much time during the week.”
It’s pretty simple, really.
