In the introductory article, it was argued that learning mental math skills remains an important element of a child has education, even in the age of the calculator. So what should you do if you feel your son or daughter has math needs a boost? Rather than rushing headlong at the problem, it is important to first establish how your student is performing in relation to their peer group, how math is taught at school and how engaged they are with the subject.
There is an upper stream of very competitive kids who are not taking the shortcuts many of our schools are instituting. For example, there are many ambitious newcomers and some who are considered "old school" or traditional who have insisted their children take the more disciplined route and who can be seen in coffee houses all over the city with pen in hand working in study groups and using cursive writing. These children will become the doctors, lawyers and upper management. They are not late and do not say "Hellooh, I had a hair appointment." The bigger issue of education relates to the children with less discipline who have "lower case" reading/writing/and "rithmatic" skills and whose parents have glib answers to the shortcomings of today has education in schools and who have facile explanations why their children are only achieving a Grade "C" average.
Now you might have come across people who prefer to write in block letters, instead of regular handwriting, all the time. While I want to give them the benefit of doubt - maybe they are simply writing down something meant for someone else - there are instances where most people take the help of printing to conceal their true personality. Now again, concealing their true personality might still be quite harmless, but ALL the time? I can understand you have to write in block letters while filling out official forms, but what is the point of using such letters all the time? It is just weird behavior, and what is worse - it can indicate a not-so-great personality trait.
