If he put it together like that, he really does have deep understanding.

Since we started doing the allowances, I’ve been having near-weekly discussions with the kids to settle accounts. And I’ve used negative numbers to refer to money they owe me at the end of the calculation, positive numbers mean they are owed money.

More recently I’ve been having them do the math in their heads, including the negative numbers. Didn’t realize I was getting ahead of the math curriculum!
