One of the most unexpectedly difficult things about being a parent is trying to remember what you learned in school in order to help your kids with their homework. You would think that things like math would be a pretty constant thing, but methods evolve and its easy for parents to be left behind.
Actress Hilary Duff is finding that to be the case with her 7-year-old son, Luca.
The Younger actress opened up on Instagram about the difficulties of being a homework helper, posting an adorable selfie with Luca hard at work.
“This guy with his spirit and kindness ? Homework is already no joke in second grade.”
Duff even made a joke about her Hollywood education, being homeschooled and having tutors on set.
“I stopped going to ‘real’ school in 3rd grade so I am actually doomed… I am left scratching my head all the time look at his homework and I’m terrified for next year!”
Although Duff blames her TV star adjacent education, a lot of her followers agreed that homework time is a trial. Duff has built her brand on Instagram about relatable motherhood with a touch of glam, and people really appreciate her honesty.
Sure, Duff has the money and privilege to make some things about parenthood easier, but there are some obstacles that happen for everyone.
