Honestly I think most everyone who was not a willing homeschool – or remote school – parent has had it with this school year. That’s normal, really, since even regular teachers are usually ready for the end of the year by this point.
One way to deal with the stress and frustration is just to laugh with other people who have gone through the same thing – a fact these 10 parents are here to help you with today.
10. Some kids are just too smart for their own good.
These are my favorite kids, actually.
Asked our 14 year old neighbour how he’s getting on with the Zoom school classes, he said “grand, I put up a photo of meself and head off with the father” 🚜 #homeschooling

9. At the very least they deserve a nice holiday gift.
A gift card, people. Nothing crappy.
Been homeschooling a 6-year old and 8-year old for one hour and 11 minutes. Teachers deserve to make a billion dollars a year. Or a week.

8. I think we’ve all learned a lesson here.
Don’t make the same mistake this man did. Unless you want a haircut.

7. I mean, teachers do it.
Not every day, though.
So today is the day I temporarily go from being a sports TV director to a home schooling teacher to 6. Can I just be more like a sub and have him watch a movie? pic.twitter.com/8fFLwtiFOB

6. All of them.
Literally just pick one with your eyes closed.

5. Hey, learn something new every day.
No judgment here.
Me roaring “ Narwhal isn’t a word…stop just making sounds” is how my homeschooling is going thusfar. 1. It turns out it is a word. 2. I know less than a four year old .

4. That’ll work out as well as me trying to teach you math.
Maybe better, to be honest.

3. It’s like, one of the only legit threats we have.
One less thread of control.
Homeschooling really does blow the “ill turn the wifi off” threat out the window.

2. Stick to your story.
They’ll lose interest eventually.

1. We can’t follow this advice retroactively, unfortunately.
