During the COVID-19 lockdown, many parents have found themselves having to homeschool their children, and it has not been easy.
Now, one mom has come up with a novel idea to give herself the credit she deserves...
It's a tough time to be a parent.
Like bringing up children wasn't already challenging enough, the COVID-19 pandemic made everything harder.
The world was literally brought to a standstill.
In an attempt to prevent further spread of the potentially deadly virus, several world leaders imposed lockdowns upon their countries.
Most major stores closed their doors...
And supermarkets were stripped bare of their products, making it incredibly challenging to keep the fridge and the cupboards full.
And, on top of all this, schools were also closed.
All over the world, children were sent home from school to self-isolate in the safety of their own homes.
Quite understandably, many parents struggled with these new sanctions.

And these parents found themselves doing the very thing they hoped they'd never have to do...
With their children's schools closed down indefinitely...
Parents were left with little choice but to educate their children themselves.
And it turns out that homeschooling wasn't the easiest of tasks...
And many parents were happy to admit that they don't make the best teachers.
It was a tremendous challenge for many parents...
