Encouragement/honesty post: I enrolled my kids in an online Math program because I was afraid of it. 🤦🏿♀️ English is my jam, but Math nope that's for someone else!!! I honestly didn't feel like I would be able to explain it to my kids (and my son is already outpacing me.)
The fear was real!!! Then my worst fear happened - my daughter didn't understand something and I had to teach her!!! (Go figure right!) I put on my big girl pants, went back to the part of my brain called pre-Algebra and somehow it rebooted. Yes, I had to do a couple of problems with an answer key, but I got my legs under me and called the kids in for a lesson. And you know what, we reasoned together! We cheered when we got it right, and we walked through our steps when we got the answer wrong.
Math may never be our most favorite subject, but today my kids got a valuable lesson: we can do hard things - AND the only failure is when you refuse to try. ♡ I hope that you can glean from this. You don't have to be an expert, trained teacher, or know it all. It's perfectly okay to show your kids your weaknesses - and that you don't run from them!
I hope you all are having a fantastic week full of aha moments!
