Q:

# Michelle asks: Why is my way of teaching my daughter math wrong and the teacher's way correct?

"I agree that too much is being taught to children at a very young age, and we as parents should be involved. I also agree that there are times homework is sent home without proper direction, and when I begin to work with my daughter the way I was taught, I am told I am doing it wrong! Why can't there be more than one way to find the answer, especially if one way is easier than the other for my child?! Why is my way wrong and the teachers way correct?"
