I remember when the schools shut down and parents were like «well, how hard can it be, I’ll teach them stuff for a short time». Right now this attitude has been mostly changed. To be more specific, instead of an attitude many parents have a big glas of wine when starting the day. And giving at least one kid up for adoption begins to look like an option. So before crippling alcoholism is getting a personality trait, have a look at our Tweets. Please enjoy! (and relax)
Quarantine Day One: This could be fun! I’ve always wondered what it would be like to homeschool!
Quarantine Day One [at breakfast]: SO HELP ME GOD, MOVE YOUR FOOT AWAY FROM YOUR BROTHER’S CEREAL BOWL OR I WILL FIND A SCHOOL IN THIS COUNTRY THAT IS OPEN AND DRIVE US THERE TODAY

[home schooling, day 1]
Me: I know this is hard.
Me: I know it’s frustrating.
Me: But we’ll get through it.
Me: Now explain this math to me just once more, I’m very close to understanding it.

me: *homeschooling day 1* just sit down, shut up and I’ll ask the questions

Homeschooling isn’t going great but at least my son has learned the skill of hiding in the bathroom in case he has kids one day

I'm homeschooling my kids.
It's tough, especially having to take their lunch money off them & throwing their schoolbags over the hedge but we're getting there

We‘re done with homeschooling we do anger management now.

The first hour of homeschooling started out strong, with some great reading comprehension exercises, and concluded with an epic tantrum over the fact that she can't watch Frozen 3 because it does not exist.
