Last night I was helping Child2 with some algebra homework. I got a 33% in algebra in high school. I’ve been very open with my kids about this fact, about the fact that I’m not good at math, and about the fact that they have an aunt who is a mathematician that has offered to help with anything they may need. Perhaps proving that they are, indeed, my kids, they continue to come to me for help with their math homework.
After successfully assisting Child2 in solving his problem, I got to thinking about how I was even able to help in that scenario. Those thoughts led to this chart that I’ve created about how dads are so awesome. Enjoy!
