"Math is too hard; I can't do it." This kind of negative thought is present in many students' minds. What they may not know, however, is that thinking this way can actually prevent them from learning math and doing it correctly. If you find that your child has an aversion to math, below you will find ways to help them overcome those negative feelings, so they can reach their full potential and learn this crucial skill successfully.

How to Encourage Your Student to Do Math Confidently

  1. To start out easy, become their math role model. Show them that math is nothing to be afraid of or to shy away from. If they see you doing math confidently, they'll get a sense that it's possible to learn it.
  2. There may come a time in which your child will be stuck with a math problem or will feel frustrated with a lesson. In those cases, you need to be there for them. Guide them, solve their doubts and provide encouraging words to keep them going.
  3. "When will I ever use this?" and "My phone has a calculator," are two of the most common phrases among reluctant mathematicians. To alter those thoughts, help them realize that math is used in everyday life and that learning it will give them an advantage.
  4. The more you practice a skill, the better you become at it; that is a fact of life. That's why you should ensure that your child practices math often. As they improve, they'll get a confidence boost that will help them continue their learning journey.
  5. Finally, to take a different approach, play games to learn math. Online games and math apps will give your child plenty of practice opportunities that will deliver fun times and stronger math skills.
