Chalk Talk: How to Help Your Child with Math
Whether you are strong or weak in the area of math, you can help and encourage your child to succeed in the area of math. First of all, know that the best help you can provide your child wrestling with math is the tools and motivation to solve problems on their own. So even if you know the answer, refrain from giving it to your child and instead help to guide them in the steps that they can take to find the answer on their own. If your child gets frustrated and can’t find the answer, let them take a break and try again. If they still are stuck, you may help them in a different way (remembering that there are many learning styles which can be accommodated) or you may talk to their teacher or have your child ask their teacher for more clarification. If your child consistently struggles in math, it may be worth finding a tutor who can help them as well.
