Parents' math skills 'rub off' on their children

now this is a very interesting result.

I quote

Parents who excel at math produce children who excel at math. This is according to a recent study that shows a distinct transfer of math skills from parent to child. The study specifically explored intergenerational transmission -- the concept of parental influence on an offspring's behavior or psychology -- in mathematic capabilities.

there's a genetic transfer...

so if they are rubbish at maths, blame their parents? and then their parents? and and and?
