homework

‘As I was driving by, I saw a student sitting on the sidewalk with his laptop open. ‘Are you trying to do schoolwork?’ I had to turn around.’: Teacher says ‘have mercy on students, school may only be a small part of their struggle’

“Sitting on the ground outside of a Subway, he told me his dad does concrete work. His company has threatened to shut down, so having internet at home is not a priority right now. This young man is TRYING, but life is hard right now.”

‘This may come as a surprise…but we aren’t on a routine. My house is not a school. My children do work when they feel like it.’: Mom gives herself ‘grace’ during quarantine, ‘I don’t feel bad about it’

“I’m not homeschooling. The younger two have their packets and are completing them when they feel like it. We aren’t getting up super early, and we’ve watched more TV then we probably should. Because the truth is, this situation is the pits. Pretty much anything goes about now.”

‘Is THIS how you act at SCHOOL?!’ ‘NO, I’M NOT YELLING.’ I nailed this homeschool thing for exactly 3 minutes before crazy started coming out of my mouth.’: Mom says to teachers ‘we miss you!’

“‘THE ANSWER IS 4. JUST WRITE DOWN 4. LIFE WILL EXPLAIN IT TO YOU LATER.’ ‘NO, I’M NOT YELLING.’ ‘WIPE YOUR DIRTY HANDS before you touch my computer!’ ‘Because he’s a BABY! Watching Frozen 2 IS HIS HOMEWORK.’ Teachers, we miss you! I am so sorry for all the things my kids are. When school resumes, I’ll bring you gifts of Starbucks and lunch and Adderall and Xanax and Tylenol. Once they’re all back in stock.”
