Does your child suffer from math anxiety? This is more of a common problem then one might think. Whether you are in sixth grade or in college, math can cause quite a bit of stress for some people. There are a few ways that you can help your child with their anxiety. Teaching some relaxation techniques can help. What I have taught my child is to take a deep breath in and slowly exhale a couple of times, while thinking positively that you can do math!
Other ways to help with math anxiety, is just to prepare. Besides having your child complete their math lessons, you can have them practice their skills with practice tests. Math flash cards and math games are also very helpful. Being prepared and thinking positive can really help in overcoming anxiety.
