Celebrity Parents Share Hilarious Homeschooling Experiences Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic
Due to the ongoing pandemic, several celebrities have had to homeschool their kids, and the experience has been hilarious for many of them.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused the world to adjust on so many levels, and our favorite celebrities have not been exempted. One central issue that has plagued every parent worldwide has been the matter of homeschooling.
As a result of the current health crisis, stars have had to take their kids' education into their hands. While some have had an easy transition, others have found it difficult and shared their hilarious encounters.
The former "The Real" co-host has had both good and bad experiences with her children, Aden,7, and Ariah, 5. While her daughter learned how to write the letter A, the process of teaching her has been nothing but difficult.
The "Sister Sister" actress confessed that the most challenging part was getting her kids to remain interested after 30 minutes as they get bored. She also praised teachers and joked that "there should be a special place in heaven for them."
In 2017, Tamera had to go through a similar process when she was potty training her daughter and helping her son through his bedwetting phase. The actress revealed then that she had to become more relaxed with her approach, especially when it comes to keeping them away from germs.
For the "Catwoman" star, homeschooling has been all shades of challenging. Berry, during an interview, described the experience as a "nightmare."
Getting candid with fans, the iconic star explained that it has been difficult for her kids to learn anything as they aren't seeing their fellow classmates, so they lack motivation.
Nevertheless, the actress has been able to find a silver lining in the frustrating experience. She expressed her joy at having enough time to bond with her two kids, Nahla, 12, and Maceo, 6.
DUCHESS KATE AND PRINCE WILLIAMS
Even the royals couldn't escape the harsh realities of homeschooling as a source revealed that Prince William and Kate have had to adjust their system to the peculiar situation.
The insider noted that at first, Kate and William had struggles getting the kids to be focused, but the Duchess of Cambridge was able to find a routine and stabilize them.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis join The Queen and Members of @TheRoyalFamily to watch the @RoyalAirForceUK @RAFRedArrows fly past over Buckingham Palace, following Trooping the Colour, The Queen’s Birthday Parade. Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. Over 1400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians come together each June in a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to mark The Queen's official birthday.📷PA @TheRoyalFamily #TroopingtheColour #BuckinghamPalace #QBP2019
After a while, the mother-of-three finally got the hang of it and has since become a professional. She once revealed that she even went as far as homeschooling the kids throughout the Easter break, but felt mean about it.
The 45-year-old actress hasn't had a good time with homeschooling her two daughters Olive and Frankie, as she confessed to crying all day long. She got honest about juggling different roles as a disciplinarian, teacher, parent, and caretaker and how overwhelming it has been.

The following is a dialogue between me and my daughter... ME: Olive will you take pictures for the @theststyle photoshoot. Its for a magazine people work for years to shoot for! OLIVE: Why are you asking me to shoot you mom? And who normally shoots you? ME: A photographer. But right now, the world is in a crazy place. Everything is an opportunity to do things differently! So what do you say? Do you want to be my photographer? OLIVE:I’m honored to be your photographer. I like taking pictures, so thank you. ME: Do you promise not to shoot me from below? OLIVE: Yes. And then you won’t look like you have a very big chin ME: Oh no, I’m worried about looking like I have NO chin! When @theststyle and I talked about doing this piece, months ago, it was supposed to be about the fact that @flowerbeauty was expanding @superdrug and then it became an even more involved and personal piece .... and wait til you see what it evolved into... ready ... wait for it...
The "Charlie's Angel" star has also had to juggle homeschooling with working and finds it hard to be patient with herself through it all. She also noted that she tries not to watch the news in front of her girls.
The yoga instructor has a large brood of five kids, but only three are busy with homeschooling. Hilaria has been able to get the hang of it, but it hasn't been without glitches. She said during an interview:
"And it's wonderful because spending time with family is so precious, but at the same time, it is a lot, and it's a big shift."

Happy Easter!! Spent entire day in sweats but I saw how amazing all of you looked in your fancy photos on insta today and got inspired 💛. I found a box of suits and the kids got dressed up after bath...Alec and I quickly threw on these clothes (he wanted to wear a running jacket🙄....he doesn’t run)...my dress isn’t closing in the back, so I guess I can’t give him a hard time 🤪. Oh...and the photo? Totally social distancing approved. Alec’s xmas gift to me was useful after all 😂📸. Lastly: notice Rafa is wearing clothes 😱🥰
Nevertheless, with the help of her husband, Alec Baldwin, they have been able to navigate difficult times and have the best time with their family, through the help of many fun activities.
