Once you lay the foundation with a strong trading plan; an understanding of the interrelationship among money management, technical analysis, and risk management; plus a knowledge of the difference between speculation and gambling, you will find that you can have an enjoyable trading experience, whether you are winning or losing.
Trading is an art. By being aware of your intuition and your feelings, you may find that you are able to trade in unique and different ways. The only way to discover that is by documenting it. The information can be maintained separately or right on the charts that you use to execute trades. The key is to document your emotions, logic, and reasoning for entering and exiting trades. Through the accumulation of 10, 30, or 100 journal entries, you are able to reasonably determine how well you are doing.
Another strategy involves allowing your child to spend some time on a computer playing math games. The computer can be a wonderful resource that supports math and other subject area skills. Software is available that will measure a child's math skill level.
A parent must know what level of math and any other subject, for that matter, that their child is performing at every school year. When children enter kindergarten and the school recommends that children know their ABC's and know how to count to twenty or whatever number, it is the parent's responsibility to make sure the child is prepared prior to enrolling in school.
