During classroom time, you can even make division activities more interactive. Create groups of students in the classroom and give them all some objects like marbles, or other small objects. You can tell your students how many they have, and how they should divide out the marbles with their friends. This will quickly help them understand the basics of division, and added onto an understanding of adding, subtracting and multiplying they will soon be on their way to understanding more complex parts of their mathematics curriculum. Keep your students interested, and if you are helping your children, remember to keep encouraging them. No matter how hard they find it, they will soon get the hang of it.
The answer for the above question is hidden in a simple example. I always give the example of stairs to my students, and giving the same example in this article. I compare the steps of a staircase to the concepts in mathematics. As this is very hard to reach higher floors of a building without stairs (or elevators these days), same way learn higher concepts in mathematics without learning basic concepts is very hard. People have to start from the ground, then first step, second, third and so on to reach their destination floor. Exactly the same way students have to start from Kindergarten, then grade one, grade two and three and so on to reach their math destination. Also, if some of the steps are broken in the staircase, it is still hard to reach the desired floor using those steps. Same way, if you are missing some of the basic concepts from elementary grades, math for you is still hard.
A great way of explaining division theories in the first instance would be to associate it to day to day life. By making connections to real life scenarios where division would come in useful - like sharing sweets with your friends, you can plant that initial definition in the student has mind. From here onwards, you can use a range of activities and teaching methods to build upon this. Just like multiplication, division can prove to be somewhat difficult to many younger students, so a good way to continue teaching it is to carry on relating it to real life scenarios.
