Subject: What number comes before or after

Good day.

My son is going to be 7 years old, but he is still having problem with
mathematic statement which involves words of 'before' and 'after'.
eg. a) What comes before 13 ? b) 13 is before ( ) ?
He normally remembers 'before' is counting backward, so he will get
(a) correct ( ans : 12 ), but (b) wrong.
 
Do you have any suggestion to help him understanding Math statement ?
