Kids are going to run into subjects that are difficult for them, whether it's math, reading, history, or whatever. Anything we can do to give them a little push toward feeling better about those subjects will steer them in the right direction. Sure, they may be failing now, but there's gotta be something there to praise. This is the latest comic from Lunarbaboon.

My older daughter hatred math for a long time, because it just seemed like a lot of work for nothing to her. I tried all kinds of games to help my kids see the patterns in math, which my other daughter just got from the beginning. Then one day out of the blue, older daughter came home and said she suddenly "gets" math, and she loves it! She could see how the patterns fit together. She wanted to be a mathematician for a while after that ...until she found something else.
