Subject: Adding and subtracting integers

Adding and subtracting integers can be a somewhat confusing concept to
teach and for students to learn and master but I think once you
understand the underlying reason, the rules start to make sense. 
Instead of explaining it here, I'm going to refer you to some great
answers from our Dr. Math archive:

An answer to a similar question by Doctor Sonya

Another answer by Doctor Santu

Another one from Doctor Sydney

I hope these pointers prove useful for you and your son.
