Dr Jaime Balladares says, ''Board games enhance mathematical abilities for young children. Certain games can improve counting, addition and the ability to recognize if a number is higher or lower than another, Using board games can be considered a strategy with potential effects on basic and complex math skills.

The guy I went out with on Saturday night says I ruined our first date because I asked him about his political preferences, his job and salary and his religious beliefs. He told me you never ask anyone about that especially on a first date. I disagree. I think you need to learn as much as you can on a first date because you need to see if your core values and beliefs align. If they don't, a second date isn't necessary. He disagreed and said two people can date without having similar religious and political beliefs. I think you need to know these things sooner rather than later. Did I overstep my bounds? Is it wrong to ask about religion, politics and salary on a first date? Why waste time!
