Top 5 Tips To Teach Kids Math Effectively   by Leah Fendi

Every parent is aware that math skills is essential for their children’s future. Math will assist in all aspects of life. If Math is educated in incorrect way, children could possibly get bored easily. Listed below are top 5 best tips to teach kids Math effectively.

1- Before teaching Math, be sure they are taught formal logic first. They should be able to think in a logical way using words and real-world situations before it can be applied to abstract concepts like numbers. Failing in this initial step causes kids hard to understand Math, and soon makes them hate Math. They should be taught on how to THINK first.

2- When thinking about the best ways to teach math to kids, age is an important element to consider first. Make sure your teaching module is appropriate for the kids’ age. Toddlers and preschoolers should learn the basic meaning of numbers, means to count things. Early elementary school should concentrate on arithmetic, understanding addition and multiplication tables for single digit numbers. Once they can master these, then move on to algebra, geometry, fractions, decimals, set theory, even calculus, and if possible, introduce the so-called advanced topics as early as possible. At the early stage of teaching advance Math, they just have to see it, they don’t have to understand it. The results will be seen later on, they will easily absorb and understand of topics when they are covered in grades 6-12.

3- Use something in which they can relate to. Try to make it simple yet fun. Also be practical to make them easy to understand. For example, to teach addition or subtraction, use countable food they used to eat. To teach division or fractions use cake.

4- Create fun and cool Math Games For Kids. Printable Math board games, card games, print and play game worksheets can be found on the internet.

5- Since Math needs a lot of recall skills, having a good memory will be a big advantage on our kids. Improve your kid’s memory by providing him/her number exercises on mental addition or multiplication, recalling dates for instance birthdays or anniversaries or dates for special occasions and making connections to other events that happened or will happen on a particular date. Working out your kid’s memory will truly be an asset at a later time when he has to memorize rules, formula, methods or procedures in resolving mathematical problems or equations.

Teaching Math to kids should always be fun, make sure your kids don’t feel stress when learning Math. Cool Math games for kids can make your kids enjoy learning Math.

"It’s the most important job there is and it doesn’t occur to people that they should learn something about how to do it properly. I’m talking about being a parent, a mom or a dad.I have heard it said that how your children will turn out, good or bad, is a crap shoot. It’s a sad belief to think that you have nothing to do with how successful your children will become as adults. I’m here to tell you that the most important factor in the success or failure of your children is your parenting skills and how diligently you apply them. Those are the skills that I address in this book.Our children should be the most important focus in our life. This book was written because even good, well meaning people have no idea how to help their children to be the very best they can be. This book will show you how to help them to achieve their full potential."Anthony Sposato"Struggling parents need immediate and practical help. Tony Sposato’s book is triage for fathers and mothers who feel something has to change.

Any parent who has shuddered at the thought of navigating an adolescent through the teen years will benefit from this book. Gale Dreas, a real-life Mom as well as a professional, shares her own stories, experiences and life-lessons while she and her husband navigate their two teenage boys through "typical" teenage situations including friendships, sibling rivalry, sexuality, drinking, driving, money, trouble with the police, teenage fights, parties and relationships. The author walks readers through both the parental "thinking process" as well as the "how to handle it" process for raising adolescents. Each section in this book provides a complete "short story" concerning real-life situations which the author has experienced. A "Tools Used" section concludes each story, summarizing specific and general lessons learned and suggestions for improvement. When serious problems occur, she brings the reader right along by sharing her thoughts, anxieties, confusion, fears and finally, her solutions.This practical arrangement moves readers through the chapters at a comfortable pace as each section is easily read in one sitting.The author combines humor, insight and practicality to create a rich toolbox of skills for the novice as well as the more seasoned parents of teenagers. Gale Dreas has been a Clinical Social Worker for twenty-four years and a parent for twenty-one years. Earlier in her career, she worked for Lutheran Social Services of Illinois and specialized in the area of substance abuse/addiction. She was the Director of Outpatient Services for the Women’s Residence of Lutheran Social Services and subsequently went into Private Practice, where she has been working for the past twentyyears. Prior to becoming a Social Worker, she worked as a police officer where she learned how to appreciate, value andstrive for the "normal" aspects of life

Effective Parenting for the Hard-To-Manage Child: A Skills-Based Book


$22.83


Parents of children who are intense and extreme in their responses to everyday experiences often lack the resources necessary to target an effective treatment plan. Effective Parenting for the Hard-to-Manage Child is a skills-based book for parents, which focuses on specific treatment strategies for infants through school-aged children who are intense, highly reactive to stimulation, and unable to self-calm. Some of these children seek intensity in interactions while others simply withdraw completely from the outside world; either way, they are inflexible and unable to adapt to change. Their responses are often inconsistent and unpredictable, making parenting challenging as typical methods may not work for every child. This book addresses the varying ways that these children behave, and provides in-depth analysis and discussion of the particular problems and techniques to help parents understand what might work for their child. The authors have integrated treatment approaches from the fields of infant/child mental health, behavioral therapy, and sensory integration, and their text is written in an accessible and clear manner that will help summarize behavioral strategies. With a particular emphasis on key concepts that will help the children take charge of their problems, the authors seek to help parents learn the process of self-regulation. With thorough, specific, and relatable material included in the book, it is an invaluable resource for parents who need advice from experts without all the jargon and generalizations.

Through her involvement with the Kids Turn program, author Mary Ellen Hannibal has discovered that the key to helping children cope with divorce is through their expressive selves, but listening and responding productively to kids is hard when parents are embroiled in one of the most difficult passages of their own lives. Using stories of actual kids in their everyday settings and the highly developed techniques of the Kids Turn organization — a nationally recognized program that has been featured on ABC’s 20/20 and NPR — Hannibal teaches parents how to recognize, cultivate, and respond to their childs feelings, thus helping the child through the parents divorce. Much has been made of the negative effects of divorce on childrens overall development and future success as mature adults, but Good Parenting Through Your Divorce proves that parents can develop the skills they need to make their childrens transition a healthy and successful one.

This brilliantly original and practical system for parenting children is the brainchild of John Gray, whose Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus books and seminars have helped millions of adults communicate more effectively and lovingly with each other. Based on this idea that children respond better to positive rather than negative reinforcement, the Children Are from Heaven program concentrates on rewarding, not punishing, children and fostering their innate desire to please their parents. Central to this approach are the five positive messages your children need to learn again and again: It’s okay to be different. It’s okay to make mistakes. It’s okay to express negative emotions. It’s okay to want more. It’s okay to say no, but remember Mom and Dad are the bosses.

Parenting a Child Who Has Intense Emotions: Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills to Help Your Child Regulate Emotional Outbursts &


$17.25


Children who are unable to manage their emotions are often overwhelmed by negative emotions leading to behavioral problems, tantrums and emotional outbursts. Attempts to soothe these children are often met with further emotional and behavioral outbursts, leaving parents feeling bewildered and helpless. Though children with intense emotions don’t necessarily have a diagnosable mental health disorder, their emotional and behavioral difficulties lead to problems at school and home and put them at risk for anxiety, depression and other behavioral health issues. Parenting a Child with Intense Emotions will help these parents accept, acknowledge, and de-escalate their children’s emotions. Children with intense emotions often lack the awareness and verbal abilities to express themselves in coherent, understandable ways. In this book, readers learn a skill called validation that will help them find kernels of truth within a child’s emotional outbursts and respond effectively. By learning the skills and strategies in this book, parents will become less defensive when angry feelings are aimed at them and better able to help their child express himself or herself effectively. Parents will practice mindfulness skills that will enable them to remain calm instead of getting caught up in the child’s emotional storm. Included in this book are specific exercises to help parents practice mindfulness and validation so that these responses will become automatic for them over time.

As a registered nurse working with psychiatric children and adolescents, Dyan Eybergen thought she was trained to handle just about every behavioral situation-until she had her own children.

For those who have struggled with parenting strategies that have failed or worked for one child but not another, "Out of the Mouths of Babes" offers a unique parenting approach tailored to working with the personalities of individual children. While guiding parents to uncover successful solutions to such frustrating child-rearing dilemmas as sleeping through the night, toilet training, and sibling rivalry, Eybergen also helps parents teach their children to feel empowered to acquire new skills, problem solve, manage conflict, and develop a healthy self-esteem. "Out of the Mouths of Babes" is an innovative guidebook that offers a new choice for parents who believe there are other alternatives to the one-size-fits-all paradigm of raising children.

Family Building: The Five Fundamentals of Effective Parenting


$3.95


Trusted family psychologist John Rosemond has a revolutionary message for today’s parents: Your grandparents’ generation knew a lot more about raising children than all of today’s "experts." The "experts" have turned child rearing into a complicated, exhausting chore rather than the simple, straightforward task it should be. In Family Building: The Five Fundamentals of Effective Parenting, Rosemond outlines the five key principles of traditional parenting that are crucial to raising well-behaved children today. " It’s about the family, not the children. " Where discipline is concerned, it’s about communication, not consequences; leadership not relationship. " It’s about respecting others, not high self-esteem. " It’s about manners and morals, not skills. " It’s about responsibility, not high achievement. Each chapter includes questions from real parents faced with real-life parenting challenges, and in his typical no-nonsense style, Rosemond provides practical solutions. Family Building restores common sense to parenting and puts the parents back in charge. Once again, John Rosemond delivers child-rearing wisdom that no parent should miss.

Pre-Parenting: Nurturing Your Child from Conception


Pre-Parenting: Nurturing Your Child from Conception


$24.8


How does a mother’s tone of voice affect her unborn child? What kind of music, if any, should a child be exposed to in the womb? Can parents influence the predispositions of their child to traits like depression, or something as elusive as basic goodness? Thanks to revolutionary discoveries in neuroscience and developmental psychology in recent years, says Dr. Thomas Verny, we now know more about these questions than ever. In Pre-Parenting, Dr. Verny translates this research into practical advice for parents and parents-to-be. Pre-Parenting explains how even the most ordinary events can evoke a cascade of biological changes in a baby — not only in the brain but also in the immune system and throughout the body. Every experience, from a baby’s trip down the birth canal to the way she is held or spoken to, can shape her health and personality. An internationally recognized expert in early human development, Dr. Verny shows parents how to use this new information to create an ideal environment for their babies, enhance their babies’ intelligence and social skills, and become better parents through "conscious parenting." Insightful and encouraging, Pre-Parenting is an invaluable guide for parents who want to help actualize their child’s full potential, beginning with conception.

Parenting the Child Who Hurts 2: The Next Steps


$32.63


Written for adoptive parents and long-term foster carers, this clear, sensitive and practical handbook is designed to support adopted children and teenagers and their families. An adopted child may well have suffered abuse or neglect; he or she will have experienced separation, loss, and inconsistent parenting. This early trauma and upheaval is often expressed in emotional and behavioral problems, which are especially difficult for the child and his or her parents to cope with during the teenage years. Caroline Archer works with the organization Adoption UK, a group which recognizes that adopting children can require unusually subtle and complex parenting skills. Drawing on both firsthand experience and research, she presents strategies to improve adopted children’s patterns of behavior, in what to them is a hostile world. The situations covered include sleep problems: anger, aggression and violence: lying and stealing: staying out late and running away; addictive behaviors and self harm; impulsiveness and risk taking; money issues; sex; suicide and compulsive eating disorders.

Teach Your Children Well: Parenting for Authentic Success


Teach Your Children Well: Parenting for Authentic Success


$6.99


Psychologist Madeline Levine brings together cutting-edge research and thirty years of clinical experience to explode once and for all the myth that good grades, high test scores, and college acceptances should define the parenting endgame. Parents, educators, and the media wring their hands about the plight of America’s children and teens—soaring rates of emotional problems, limited coping skills, disengagement from learning and yet there are ways to reverse these disheartening trends. Teach Your Children Well acknowledges that every parent wants successful children. However, until we are clearer about our core values and the parenting choices that are most likely to lead to authentic, and not superficial, success, we will continue to raise exhausted, externally driven, impaired children who believe they are only as good as their last performance. Real success is always an inside job, argues Levine, and is measured not by today’s report card but by the people our children become fifteen or twenty years down the line. Refusing to be diverted by manufactured controversies such as “tiger moms versus coddling moms,” Levine confronts the real issues behind the way we push some of our kids to the breaking point while dismissing the talents and interests of many others. She shows us how to shift our focus from the excesses of hyperparenting and the unhealthy reliance on our children for status and meaning to a parenting style that concentrates on both enabling academic success as well as developing a sense of purpose, well-being, connection, and meaning in our children’s lives. Teach Your Children Well is a call to action. And while it takes courage to make the changes we believe in, the time has come, says Levine, to return our overwrought families to a healthier and saner version of themselves.
