In 2014 the Welsh Government ran an advertising campaign encouraging parents to be positive and not speak negatively about maths in front of their children.
They recognised the importance of this very simple thing that parents can do to help our children have a positive, can-do attitude to maths, and that is:
Pass on a positive attitude to maths
In fact, the psychologist Tanya Brown said:
‘Perhaps the single most important thing that parents can do to help their children with maths is to pass on a positive attitude.’
This is one of the simple things I discuss in my book, Help Your Child Do Maths Even If You Don’t.
I am so delighted to say that the bilingual Welsh/English version of my latest book has been published and is now available. Please see that link.
