Math. I think it's one of the challenges and struggles every parents face when they have kids who goes to school. Haha! Math was my least fave subject while I was still in school. And now that I have a 2nd grader daughter, Sofi is beginning to have a love/hate relationship with her Math subject as well. And when I checked Sofi's Math book, I understand what she feels. They're more advance now(compared to my Math subject when I was in 2nd grade), more complicated, hard and well... frustrating! Gone are the days of the simple 1+1, Ha! Can you relate with your kids Math dilemma?
