    Holly picks on herself, SS. We are merely observers.

    She is hearing what she wishes (parents often do that).

    Maybe Holly will turn her attitude around and make something of herself – it can happen! No one believed in me, so I didn’t do much with myself until I left the house and got out on my own. I believed in myself, and that’’s all that mattered.

    It’s good to have these ambitions for Holly. But to achieve them she’s going to need math ability which isn’t going to happen by a hope and a prayer. And you can’t count on your friendly elementary teacher to deliver the goods. They are usually math phobic and have an active hatred of math. Val’s got to get Holly an arithmetic book and have her work her way up from there with a lot of practice.

    In college the math instructors will have dim-witted platitudes like, “You’ve got to love the math.” Or they will say “You’ve got to learn to think!” How can anyone love something they are not familiar with with? There is a huge lack of understanding at all levels about the importance of an arithmetic background in this country.
