If your children love it, you don't need to read the rest of this. Just don't brag to your friends because it is a tearful subject in a lot of homes.
I'll confess that I flunked a math class in college. Actually I made a D+ but you can't do that in your major so I had to take it again. Lots of reasons for that. But I know the pain of not having a clue and just not getting it.
If you have little girls, encourage them especially. Girls are as good at math as boys. It's not "ungirly". A smart, girl geek can be quite sexy! A lot of the time girls don't get that push in this subject. My niece just finsihed GA Tech and is in Italy right now finishing her masters. She is as sexy and smart as they come....and blonde! Remember Winnie, the cool girl on The Wonder Years? She is now a mathematician among other things.
Parents say, "I wasn't good at math so my kids aren't either". What's that about? It just means you understand that it's hard for them. By telling your children that, it gives them permission to be so-so when they could be better. We don't mean it that way. We just mean to be encouraging. I don't mean to pressure them. Just realize that your experience isn't theirs.
Math struggles at your houses? Find out why. Meet with the teacher and counselor. Get extra help early in the year. Support them and encourage them to stick with it, ask questions, sit
Ok. I'm off my soapbox. Got it out of my system. Go play! No more math! I get that.
