When I was a toddler, I did not like milk. I still don’t. But back then, because there weren’t definitive guidelines around what babies should and shouldn’t drink, my parents gave me apple juice. I drank apple juice like it was water.
We found that getting Mazzy a math tutor increased her confidence, eased homework tensions at home, helped her retain old math skills and prepared her for what was to come. So how do you find the right tutor?
Last night, Mazzy took out her social studies homework. It was an article about a firefighter who had died in the Twin Towers. She looked at me noticing her work. “Mom. We learned about 9/11 in class today.”
My mom once told me that my dad wasn’t that good with my sister and I as babies; he was way better with us when we got older. I didn’t really understand what she meant, until I watched it happen with my own kids.
