To some students, math is an uninteresting subject. To some other students, math is too challenging. A third group thinks that there's no point learning it. The fact is that math is incredibly useful: the world is ruled by it, and it helps us think analytically and logically. For this reason, you must encourage your child to learn math, even if they have a math aversion.

How to Encourage Your Student to Do Math Confidently

  1. First, you need to lead by example. If your child sees that you shy away from math or refer negatively to it, they won't make much effort to learn it either. Do math confidently, so your child can too.
  2. Of course, your child will need your support through their learning process. To that end, be there, answer their questions, guide them, and provide encouraging words when necessary.
  3. As mentioned, some students that learning math is pointless. If your child is one of them, show them that math is everywhere and use it in your real life. For instance, when you cook, ask them to help measure ingredients.
  4. As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. You can search online for practice sheets your child can complete over the break. As they practice, they'll develop their skills, improve, and trust their abilities more.
  5. Lastly, you can make math less intimidating to your child with games. You can download online games and apps designed to help children strengthen their math skills.
