How Can I Motivate My Child at Home in Math?
Curiosity and motivation are key to math success.
But what if your child is not motivated? The first step may be to start a conversation to find out why and when your child lost interest in math. Listen with compassion and assure your child that you are a part of their team. Always speak positively about math, being careful not to pass on any math anxieties you may have. A part of your job is to help your child recognize how much math they encounter in everyday situations when they are having fun.
