When I come to sections about math in her writings, I skim them and then hurry along to topics that interest me more. I'm perfectly competent in math, but I'm not crazy about it.
now it's working...
It was easy to do mathy things with my kids when they were younger. We counted together, sorted socks and silverware, found patterns, played dominoes, and set up shops with a cardboard box for a cash register. Then I started doing formal math instruction with my daughter, and it was fun at first.
...now it's not
Somewhere around age 10, my daughter and I started struggling with each other during math. In response, I began blowing off math lessons, but doing math occasionally instead of daily frustrated her all more. When she announced she didn't like math, I knew I had to change the situation.
I didn't know what the problem was, but I didn't want to encourage any notion that she wasn't good at math, and I definitely wanted to discourage a habit of the two of us fussing with each other over a school subject. While I don't know much about what Charlotte says about math, I do know what she says about habits and relationships, and I set aside the math books while I re-grouped.

Photo of early childhood treasures: bottle caps collected and sorted in a city park. As little kids, mine knew which beer brand was the most popular in various neighborhoods based on the caps they found in the parks. How lovely.
