Quite frequently the tongue in a child's shoe will slip around to the side where it can make the foot very uncomfortable. The situation can be remedied quite simply, however, by making two small slits in the offending tongue and passing the shoelaces through them.

I've often wondered why some types of sneakers have the laces through the tongue. Thanks to you, now I know. Thanks!
