RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Teaching kids how to tied their shoes can be a real drag, but one mom has a simpler trick to teach kids that makes it much easier.

The video was posted on Facebook by the Unstoppable Mother last month and has been viewed more than 6 million times. In it, Kirsten Johnson, a self-proclaimed "Millionaire Mama of Two Beautiful Boys," shows off the simple trick which takes just four steps. She also shows her son Rylan tie his shoes, saying he just learned the trick minutes earlier.

The video is less than two minutes long and promises to have your kids more confident and out of velcros in about the same amount of time.

“Is this the most ideal method? Absolutely not,” Johnson told TODAY Parents. “It’s kind of awkward to untie them afterwards, but it’s a great stepping stone.”
