Ok so, so far this year math has been a continuing battle here at home with him. Last night he had a problem: Alyssa has $2.55 in her piggy bank in dimes and nickels. Her bank has twenty-one dimes, how many nickels does it have? Well his answer was 4 nickels, I believe he didn't read through and answered for 21 cents, but he says and swears he is not confused. I even brought out the change so he can count the change and he still wants to argue with me that the answer is not 9 nickels it's 4. Everyday is a battle, and I know he sees that he's wrong but too hard headed to say it, or admit he made a mistake. How do you guys help your children with this type of behavior? I've written notes to the teacher, even asked for tutoring if possible, the work is review from before but soon they will be moving on and all I see him doing is moving backwards.
