When you're teaching your son the multiplication tables you need to
keep one thing in mind...what are they?  What is the point of teaching
kids to memorize numbers?  You must explain what their purpose is. 
Use real life examples.  take for example...if you have 2 cups of
water and 1/2 cup of sugar and you multiply them...what do you have???
NOTHING....explain to your son that all multiplying is...is
grouping...use objects... example...what are three groups of four
apples?   apple apple apple apple
          
          apple apple apple apple
        
           apple apple apple apple
  answer =12
