Did you know that 50% of Americans have math anxiety? So says my next guest, Dr. Aditya Nagrath. Find out how 2+2 = stepfamily success, while acknowledging the risks involved in developing skills in areas that are difficult for us. Listen in to today's episode of Blended on the Bluff, featuring Dr. Aditya Nagrath, Chancellor at Elephant Learning and Chief executive officer at Elephant Head Software.
Oftentimes in blended families, we are in the business of risk…risk of emotions overtaking any family member, risk of rejection or risk of failure. Yet, we are called to be an “investor.” A steward. A blended parent who doesn’t have all the answers but is willing to put him or herself out there because God has called them to this family.
Listen in for how these 3 tips that apply to teaching your kids math also apply to blended families:
1. Be extra sensitive about the words you use.
2. Identify patterns that cause frustration. Then break the pattern.
3. Find a child-led approach to the situation – you’re listening to them, not telling them.
There you have it! That's the condensed version of how 2+2 = an episode on Blended on the Bluff. If you’re struggling with your own stepfamily equation, I promise not to pepper you with a bunch of formulas. Instead, I’ll listen and work with you to move from where you are to where you long to be. Book a call today at stepfamilypodcast.com today
