Maths homework with your child has turned into a battle.
What happy students and parents say.
"Thank you so much. Ellie has found her confidence and is working her way steadily up the Maths ladder."
There is no such thing as a maths brain but for those of us who lose confidence and start to believe that we 'don't get maths,' it can sometimes seem that way.....Feelings of stress and overwhelm often start when children feel helpless in a situation. These feelings are a very normal response but left unchallenged can be confidence breaking. Very quickly they can start to tell themselves, 'I can't do this' or 'Everyone thinks I'm stupid' or 'I always get it wrong'.
This can be especially true if others seem to be coping well in the same situation.....Just imagine sitting on the mat in the classroom surrounded by all your classmates. All their hands are up, they know the answer, they're starting to wriggle. Your mind has gone blank, your heart is beating fast and a strange metallic taste is in your mouth. You feel like crying, your face feels red, you wish you could disappear.
As adults we know that's a stress response kicking in.....but your child just feels wrong!
Children must have confidence in their ability to work things out and a willingness to risk making a mistake if they are to build resilience and succeed.
I'll help your child to understand what it means when they get that 'stressed' feeling.
I'll teach them how to calm that reaction so they can get on with figuring things out.
I'll help them build resilience so they have the courage to make mistakes.
