Overcoming Math Anxiety + Managing Math Anxiety in the Teacher or Parent
Hey Mocha Family,
When Mocha Dad and I were thinking about homeschooling our children, one of my greatest concerns was math. I've struggled with math anxiety since high school and doubted I would be able to teach math without passing on the same fears to my kids.
I thought a perfect parent was necessary for a child to succeed.
Learning to be transparent and model how to navigate weakness is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children. In this video I share how I turned an embarrassing math moment with my eleven year old, into what I consider to be one of the most positive experiences we've had homeschooling.
