As adults we usually have a positive or negative feeling toward maths based on our experiences of school. With a black and white outlook of either we could or couldn't.  Let your words help your child to know they can succeed if they practice and that 'having a go' is the real key to success not getting the right answer. If a child percieves a wrong answer as personal failure they are likely to aviod maths and their skills and confidence diminish. Give them the gift of self worth every time they try and you will help them more than you know.
