Be positive about math _ Our kids like to imitate us; if we send a negative message to them about our own experiences they may simply accept it and believe their own experiences will be the same. So do not groan about how much you hated math in school and definitely do not make flippant comments like you were lucky you learned to count as that is all that you need in life.
Don't forget that your efforts with your child's learning are as valuable as the efforts of their teachers. You can have a huge effect on your child's learning at home, by encouraging them to try hard and do well in their studies. There are a number of things you can do at home to enhance your child's mathematical skills if they appear to be struggling with their math studies at school.
