Helping one of my daughters with her math homework and I just stated:
-Slow down and make sure you understand the task before you begin.
-Once you begin do not get frustrated. Stay on task until it is completed.
-You are building a foundation for the next level of learning.
-You must not just get it done, but understand why it is done or the structure will fall.
-It is not about being right, but getting it right.
Which then after a moments reflection returned and smacked me in the face.
Evidently I am channeling lectures buried in my subconcious from my childhood now.
