Question

Parents, do you regret your education or career choices?

We talk so much about helping our children to find their path and their strengths and access a great well-rounded education and all that stuff. But I'm really curious, what about us? While we're guiding them, do we have regrets? Do you wish you'd gone to uni, wish you hadn't, regret your career of choice, perhaps you've had a change of career? Would love to know if this impacts on how you encourage your own kids' choices.

Do you know the difference between PEMDAS and PEDMAS?

Last year, I asked this question on my facebook account and tagged a couple of parents to see if their kids can answer it correctly or not. The post went viral with 4.7 million views and 2.3 million replies. The result was shocking and 83.5% failed to answer it correctly. How many of you think you know this fundamental concept properly? I will ask a question within a week and hope the failure rate would reduce. Have a nice week! :)

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?

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.
