Some of your emails...

(for emails from readers of her books, click here!)

Q: I admire how active you are in the field of mathematics, and I'm impressed that you graduated Summa cum Laude with a degree in math! My small daughter (3 years old) shows great interest in math, though anything beyond single digit addition isn't possible yet. Any suggestions on how to help keep that spark alive as she grows up?

Danica Answers: Well I'm not a child psychologist, but I would recommend a few things. How about exposing her to good role models at this early age - find stories about great female mathematicians, and read them to her, etc. Also, I would be careful not to push her too hard. Keep math fun, and remember to point out simple math in real life at the grocery store and the mall! As she gets into middle school, my books are good resources for encouraging her to stay interested in math and develop her smarts. I also encourage you to look into the Math-a-thon program benefitting St. Jude Children's Research hospital at www.mathathon.org. Kids can participate in that from Kindergarten through high school, and the money they raise benefits kids their own age who have cancer. It's a wonderful organization.

Above all, your love, support and encouragement will go a long way. If you teach her that can accomplish whatever she sets her mind to, she'll be the best she can be.

Dear Danica,
How do you stay in such good shape? You have a toddler and seem to lead a very busy life. Would love to learn your tricks!

Danica Answers:
I actually wrote a blog entry about this - check it out! Thanks so much for writing.

Danica, I have always been interested in you. It began with seeing you on The Wonder Years... I appreciated your talent (as best as I could at that age). I've continued to admire your talent and watch your performances in nearly everything you have done since those days (I loved you in that episode of NCIS!!!). I was also fortunate to see you in Proof out in San Diego and absolutely loved everyone and their performances. Then one day I found out a close friend of mine, Jeremy, had interactions with you at a Sundance festival I believe. You then were no longer a myth... you became a real person. Learning about his interaction with you, and hearing how polite and friendly you were gave me more of a look at you... not just your characters. Then one day I stumbled onto your site. I learned more about you and was fascinated that not only are you a talented when it comes to acting, but you have a beautiful mind that appreciates philanthropy and mathematics. When I found that on your site my respect grew for you ten-fold. I simply wanted to share with you that I think you are a wonderful person. I'm constantly amazed and put in a complete state of awe when I learn more about you...

Respectfully, Ryan

Danica Answers:
Wow, I'm not sure what to say except "Thank you!" I wouldn't have a career if it weren't for fans like you. Thanks for your lovely email, Ryan.

Ms. McKellar,
It makes me extremely happy to learn that your life has turned out so well. You were the first "TV" girl I had a crush on when you portrayed Winnie. You reminded me of girls I actually knew. I dreamed of having a relationship like Kevin and Winnie's. When you two were fighting, my heart would break a little. And my heart fluttered during your first kiss. It was perfect. I've always wondered what became of you (because I feel like I sort of grew up with you), and on a whim I did a Google search and found your official site. I'm not surprised that you lead such a complete life. Your philanthropy efforts and your commitment to math education are wonderful examples to young people today. I wish that the American public had more of an opportunity to hear about successful, happy former-child stars like you.

I still have videotapes of The Wonder Years episodes. I love watching them with my wife and our three children. My son, Ethan, has a crush on Winnie. He can't help it, and neither could I.

Congratulations on turning out so well. Somehow, in a really weird way, your life gives me hope that my two daughters will find happiness in their lives. Thank you for that.

Danica Answers:
I thought I wanted to post this one so that I could say, "You're welcome." Then I realized it was because I wanted to say, "Thank you." It is fans like you who simultaneously remind me of the blessing it is to have been a part of a show like TWY, and my responsibility to continue leading a life worthy of the fans who love it. All the best to you and your family.

 

Q: I'm writing to let you know that I'm a big fan of yours. When I was little and my mom took me shopping for a new pair of glasses, I kept telling her..."Mom, I want glasses like the ones Winnie Cooper wears..." and we looked all over until we finally found "Winnie Cooper glasses." I'm 25 now but I still remember it. You are a great actress and I wish you well in all that you do in life. I hope this question is not too personal...All of the girls I knew (in my younger days) had a crush on Fred Savage!! Did you as well? We envied you!! You know how silly childhood crushes can be...

Danica Answers:
That glasses story is one of the cutest things I've heard, and it sounds like you have a great mom! Thank you for all of your well wishes. To answer your question: When Fred and I shot the first episode of the show where we have our first kiss, I did have a huge crush on him, and he had a crush on me, too. (We were like, 12.) So my first kiss was a pretty nerve-wracking experience! But we never kissed off screen, and pretty quickly our feelings turned into brother/sister, and stayed that way.
