Don’t Let Grades or Self-Esteem Suffer
There is nothing harder than watching your child struggle. It’s not easy to motivate a student to keep trying in a subject where they feel defeated, like they just don’t “get it”. Math has a reputation for being a subject that’s either in your DNA or not. Students can lose confidence and the motivation to try. They dismiss math as “not their thing”. And their grades and self-esteem suffer, along with straining the relationship with the parent that is doing all they can to help them.
