The very reason why I decided to outsource.

I fear I may just bash DD's head or better still bash my own head into a wall if I continue coaching her

If my DH starts to get real angry aft teaching the kids Maths, he starts to scold and hit them and he cant control his temper. He scared tat he will injured them in the process of hitting them, so he bought a cane. From tat day on, the kids are v obedient. No one dare to try the 'power of the cane'. :spank:

I get really frustrated explaining Maths to my daughter, but I think I've learned not to be too monster-like. My husband is very patient though. He's a lot more gifted at Maths than I am, and yet he can be so patient and encouraging.

lucky me, yes. mathematically gifted, no.

first and foremost, they must be willing to be taught. secondly, i try to explain to in the way i'd like others to explain to me. with even tones. at times when i don't have all the answers, i'll admit it and finding out the answers together works wonders in bonding. there, when the stage is set and learning and teaching became less daunting. :smile:

I can achieve this with DD2 but not with DD1.

But ahh, every child is different so we have our work cut-out for us.

Hubs better in math than me but no patience. They end up in tears and work may be done but they will tell me they still don't understand.

I'm the go to person for fun learning most times.

Morphing into monster is when they totally refuse to try, or unreceptive, despite there we are trying very hard to explain in a way they can understand better. Used to be DD1 but now in Sec 1, she's on her own.

They can jolly well get Daddy Math Monster if they reject mommy dearest.
