Thank you! I learned maths early, as part of daily life - counting change to be rolled up for the bank, playing games with dice and cards, and so many household tasks with simple math. Never learned to fear it. Never let my schooling get in the way of my education, as Mark Twain said.
When my kids and grandkids learn math at home, they learn eagerly and quickly. They are way, way "ahead of curve," and in a tiny fraction of the time taken by traditional schooling. That, in fact, is a major part of why they are not in school - I knew in my bones that school was wasting my time.
The same for reading - my word, the time wasted waiting for my turn to read two lines of a "See Dick Run. See Sally Run." book. I could have been devouring heaps of much more interesting books, had I not been wasting so much time in school.
