Does Math Frighten You?

Here's an interesting article I read from the Wall Street Journal about parents helping students with Math when they may not feel 100% confident themselves.  I found it interesting how from an early age parents begin to shape a child's perception of Math...

This article also makes me think of the book "Mindset:  The New Psychology of Success" by Carol Dweck.  If you haven't read it--it may be worth reading as it challenges us to think of how we shape our children's (or student's) perceptions when challenges are faced.
