Question

Calculators or matter inside the skull?

Parents, what is your opinion about the usage of calculators? Do you think it is a right decision to allow kids use calculators while solving mathematics problems? Don't you think it might hamper the ability to think critically? Or you feel calculators would help kids solve more problems? Or it doesn't even matter? Research shows kids who get on well with calculators are not even confident during real life basic arithmetic e.g. shopping, buying a couple of movie tickets, tendering change, calculating tips, sale discount, profit-loss etc. Kids who do calculations in mind will develop good reasoning skills and problem solving ability would increase manifold. Encourage your kids to use brains rather than robotic calculators. What is your opinion?

Question

Are there any games to help my 9 year old son with autism to gain confidence?

My 9 year old child has recently been diagnosed on the Autism spectrum. He has always had a difficult time making friends, which has become more problematic with the loss of 2 best friends in the last year. I read an article saying that children with low self-confidence can be upset when they face difficulties, and videogames might motivate them and inspire them to do better. But can actually videogames boost children' self-esteem? Where can I find resources for building confidence in children?

We hear so many negative comments about the impact of television on children, however I am seeing that my daughter is picking up a lot of vocabulary and imaginative play through the programmes that she watches. She doesn't watch it all the time, but she is clearly picking up a variety of skills that I see as positive. Am i being too simplistic? I only ask as I feel that i am missing something.

Question

Would you talk "Math" language with your kids?

A study published in the Journal of Language and Social Psychology showed that it is possible to help toddlers become familiar with number words that can promote their interest in math later on. And another study, published in Developmental Psychology in 2010, showed that the frequency of number talk in the children’s homes had a big impact on how well the youngsters understood basic mathematical concepts such as the cardinal number principle and alike. Some practical suggestions are: - use numbers when dealing with dates, or temperatures - ask children to count how many toys they’re playing with or how many pieces of food are on their plate etc.

Question

The new Gen of consumers are growing up immersed in a digital world,will this need to be replicated in their real worlds in order to engage?

As Generation Z and now even Generation Alpha, are growing up in an age where wireless high speed internet is just like air to them and 17% of under 3s now own their own laptop or tablet, it is clear to see that they are a generation of digital natives, like no generation we have ever experienced before. We have already seen stores replicating this digital world in-store for children, such as Harrods Toy Kingdom and The Nature Trial Installation at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London but what about when these children come of age and become the main consumer cohort? Will brands need to change the way they create in-store experiences for these consumers to continue to engage digitally with them?
