No. It will help develop your children mental development through using both sides of the brain hemispheres enhancing their visualisation, concentration and memory.
Does it help grow the child’s confidence?
Yes. It would definitely help build your child’s confidence especially in Math as well as academic performance in general. However, a child who is confident in Math may be less confident in other areas such as sciences, arts or even sports.
Would such over-confidence negatively affect his/ her personality?
The negative impact of such confidence on personality will always depend on how the parents choose to raise up their children. The children could be arrogant or showing off their skills or they could learn how to use such skills to help others. It is the parents’ responsibility to equip their children with the useful tools they will need to face the different challenges in life without compromising their values.
