    I have this same experience when it is about Maths – I struggled so much. When my son struggles, I went right back to myself and school.
    Then I started to figure our ways to help him- he is a visual and kinaesthetic learner- like me-
    So an old school abacus is perfect
    It’s visual – you move the beads- it’s easy to do.
    This week we learned our 6 times table together- it has been a huge confidence boost for both of us.
    The school system we have here in the UK for our children doesn’t reacted or respond well to children who need extra time or extra equipment to enable then to understand what they need to learn.

    I am learning all the time – the positive ways to encourage and support our son through Maths x

    I love your reality in Finding Joy xxx

    From a teacher’s perspective, I am so proud of you for taking the step and allowing your son to attend this summer reading camp. Please don’t be afraid to ask for help; especially if it involves your children’s education and well-being at school! There are many options and services available to help children become more successful students and learners. Stay in touch with the teachers and counselors and develop a repoire with them. Love all that you do! Aloha!
