Banish Math Anxiety | Dr. Aditya Nagrath | Episode 208 Mighty Parenting | Raising Teens | Parenting Young Adults

    • Parenting

Concepts in math build on each other as they go; if your teen runs into difficulty in algebra, then geometry and algebra 2 and calculus are only going to confuse them further. This is how our kids develop math anxiety, compounding years of failed understanding and struggle through their schooling. Dr. Aditya Nagrath joins Mighty Parenting podcast host Sandy Fowler and explains why our kids have math anxiety, how to tell when they have math anxiety and where the breakdown in understanding is happening, and how we can teach them the language of math and rebuild their confidence in themselves.

Sponsor Tip and Deal from Troomi Wireless:
Talk to your child about cell phones. Ask them (no matter what their age!) how they see their cell phone supporting them in their life.
How will it help them meet their goals? Grow their friendships? Feel good about themselves? When do they want to use it and when do they want a break from it?
Then help them set up their phone in a way that supports them.
And the reason I partnered with Troomi is their phones and wireless network encourage those conversations and support the follow through.
Your child’s experience is completely customizable and can only be changed through the parent portal so you can have conversations and make changes together.
And through December 31st you can use the coupon code MIGHTYPARENTING to get a free phone (after that the code gets you $50 off your phone). So if you’re buying a first phone or want to support the development of healthy habits in your teen visit https://troomi.com(affiliate link–thanks for supporting the podcast by using this link ) and remember to use the coupon code MIGHTYPARENTING to save yourself some money.
