What a difference experience makes!
Now maybe the Mom will get some also and not feel as intimidated
next time. I tell you I try not to pass on the dreaded "Math"-
avoidance I have, I wish I could love it like my children do and I
appreciate any one willing to help my older son. thank goodness my
husband and parents are both whiz' at it.
We're all good at something you just have to search till you find it
and hope that others will do the same, after all. societies children
are everyone's children
