I gave up on homework

Becoming a parent comes with a slew of responsibilities, but the most dreaded one might just be helping kids with their homework. My kids are now in high school and I can’t help them anymore.

We tried to help my daughter with mathematics and she got a failing mark. We didn’t use the right method to get to the answer. The school system keeps telling parents we have to get involved with homework and helping our kids study, but they change the way of teaching and we don’t know what’s up or down anymore.

I know I’m not alone in this. Have you seen the latest movie of “The Incredibles”? Never laughed so hard in my life.

“Why is my kid’s 3rd grade homework hard 4 me? Am I regressing? Is she a genius? I pray it’s the just latter but fear it’s partly the former.” – @simoncholland

Add a learning disability to the mix and all hell breaks loose.

I was literally getting to the point of nausea and being physically ill over my kids homework. I had to step away. I now tell them to do their best, apply what they have learned to the best of their ability and that’s all we can do.
