Math Anxiety is an Epidemic

If you were to ask any child what her most feared subject was, most probably she would reply math. Math is tough; there is no doubt about that. Learning math takes lots of effort. But the sad truth is that many parents leave 100% of the responsibility of teaching to school teachers. However, that is a mistake for the best math students are being heavily coached at home.

Steps to Overcoming Math Anxiety

If your child doesn't take to math like a duck to water, don't despair. Kids were not built for math. In fact, there is no such thing as a natural-born math whiz. Here are the steps to take if you want your child to overcome her math anxiety and become a math whiz. Don't worry, there is no such thing as too late even if she is in high school.

1. Go Backwards

2. Lots and Lots of Math Problems

Buy lots of workbooks for your child. Get her to solve lots of math problems. You can also download worksheets from the internet. You can start slow but over time your child should be spending at least an hour a day on math. I am not joking. Since your child is starting with math problems at a lower grade level she shouldn't find it all that difficult and dreary.

3. Make it Fun and Funny

Make your math lessons fun by cracking jokes and showing lots of enthusiasm when you are teaching her. Show her your love for math. Hopefully, that will be contagious.

You can even create your own funny math problems. Instead of the boring "If John has 3 marbles and Jenny has 5 more marbles than John, how many marbles do they have altogether?" you could write "If Witch Wilda has 3 hairy warts on her slimy tongue and Wizard Woku has 5 more warts on his slimy tongue than Witch Wilda, how many gross warts do they have altogether?" you would have a much better response from your child, after she has stopped giggling.

4. Praise and Build Self-Esteem

Every time your child finishes her work to the best of her ability, praise her for her effort. "You really worked hard to solve those problems. I am so proud of you!" Your child will come to love your praise and attention and will work harder to earn more praise.

Always praise her for her effort, but don't ever call her a math whiz. That is because your child must learn the all-important lesson that any challenge can be overcome by hard work, not by talent alone. This will also prevent her from being crippled in the future by math anxiety if she has difficulty with a particularly tough math problem. Instead, she will have faith in her ability to solve any challenging problem. She will know that as long as she has the right attitude she will eventually learn how to solve any math question, no matter how terribly difficult it may seem to be at the moment.

If you do it right, your child will come to love math and will hunger for more math questions. As she gets better and better, you will soon find that she has finished one grade level and will be ready to move on to the next. Go ahead and promote her to the next grade level. Don't be surprised if in a year's time she has completed a few grades and is even ahead of her peers!

In Conclusion

Rome was not built in a day, and neither will your child's math skills. It will take patience, determination and love on your part to help your child build her self-confidence in math. Happy teaching!
