    devika,
    start with biscuits, 2 for u and 2 for me now how many are there kind.

    then you could bring in some carrots of beans putting it into the vessel as u cut one two three and so on, they catch on fast when you dont make it books and pencil.

    ur pet how many legs, and how many pillows for dad and how many for him leaves flowers, steps in the house.

    doors and windows anything to start with addition and subtraction and slowly take on to multiples..sunkan

    Hi Devika

    As Subashini n Sunkan have said use practical methods .

    Use his favourite things to explain the problem , u can get a small play board n ask him to work out in that like his teacher does .......

    Dont force him to study maths as it will develop an aversion for the subject ,take it easy n give him small rewards like a chocolate or pencil etc when he performs well.

    Regards
    santasekar

    hi devika

    how old is ur son? if he is still in primary you could consider the suggestions given by Subhashini & Sunkan.

    You could also give him colourful crayons to colour flowers, fruits , etc. and count all of them having same colour, likewise.

    Its best to induce add, subtract actions in things which the child enjoys playing/eating , etc.

    Dear Devika ma'am

    If your son is in primary class, you can put him in abacus classes..They teach maths differently unlike in schools and instill great interest in children.

    Love
