This is about parenting. The A* boast on the cover of my book was simply a marketing gimmick to cause you to pick up the book. It is true that my son scored A* for Math at PSLE and IGCSE exams, but the joy brought by the A* outcome was brief. Very brief.
The real fun and long lasting joy was in the journey. The heart of the message of Fun-filled Conversations is that you CAN parent and bond with your child while teaching him math. It can be fun, that is, if you make it fun.
Wikipedia defines the IKEA Effect in behavioural economics as “the tendency for people to place a disproportionately high value on objects that they partially assembled themselves, such as furniture from IKEA, regardless of the quality of the end result.”
This summarises my desire for you. That you will place a high value on your child, whom you taught in partnership with his school teacher, regardless of his test scores.
