Math is often regarded as a difficult, intimidating, stressful, and even useless subject by students. In some cases, these negative perceptions can lead to anxiety and aversion towards math. If your child presents these symptoms, below you'll find a few tips on how you can encourage them to do math with confidence.

How to Encourage Your Child to Do Math Confidently

Set a Good Example

Your child looks up to you and molds their behavior depending on how you deal with the situations presented to you. For that reason, you shouldn't be afraid to do math, lest they get the wrong idea about it. Set a good example and do math confidently, so they can follow you.

Be There for Them

If your child feels uncertain when working on math, you should be there for them to provide the support they need. This may mean answering math questions, motivating them to keep going, or enrolling them in tutoring classes so they can learn better.

Give Them Real Life Examples

Often times, students' lack of interest in math stems from the idea that they won't ever use it in real life. To revert this, give your child examples of how math impacts their daily life. For instance, manage the house bills with them so they can use math.

Help Them Practice

Practicing math often can help your child become more  familiar and comfortable with it. You can look online for worksheets to give them more opportunities to practice. As they begin to improve, their math anxiety will lower.

Use Games to Learn

Finally, make math less intimidating for your child, by presenting it in game form. Luckily, there are many online games and apps they can use for this purpose, so search for one that will get them interested and learning.
