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.
A lot of people hate math. They say that it's boring. But don't you know that we use math in our everyday life? When we go to the supermarket and buy something, we use math in counting our change. We are also using math when we check the time everyday. When we ride the bus, pay the bills, building things, estimate the ingredients in cooking, budgeting our daily consumptions and the list goes on and on and on.
