DD9 had 2 years of toxic math experiences in school, as a result, she had herself convinced that she hated it and that she was no good at it (she is currently taking Algebra 1). @ days ago after school she was telling me about what happened and the first thing she said was: "you know mom, I love math! It is so cool and interesting and fun, I love it."
I was so excited to hear this. I told her teacher the next day and she was as excited as I was.
