    Over the years, I've noticed that the children who get sent on errands to the local shop have an advantage re arithmetic over those who never handle change.

    I agree! And research shows that children who use calendars at home for birthdays, counting days until exciting future events, etc, also develop better numeracy skills. It's so simple for parents to engage their kids if they only knew - I think many are still in fear of maths!
