A confession

Genius tshirt

My son thinks I am one of the cleverest people on the planet.
Obviously I’m not going to correct him on this awesome assumption. Wouldn’t want to shatter the 10 year old’s illusions.
I’m going to revel in the glory for as long as it lasts.

I love that he loves to learn because it means we get to study together at home and I get to know how he’s getting on at school and help out here and there.
I took English and Maths A level so I feel fairly confident I can lend a hand, even if I did sit my exams rather a while ago *ahem*.
So we bond over prime numbers and median and non verbal reasoning and it blows him away that I’ve even heard of any of them.

“Wow mum, you know everything!”
Who wouldn’t get a buzz out of those wide-eyed exclamations?

But I’m writing this post as a confession to the cosmos. To you dear reader. I am writing to admit to the world that I Google his homework.
Do I need to underline that and bold it up?

I Google His Maths Homework.

In my defence, it’s changed so much since I sat my exams. There are words used I’ve never even heard of let alone know what they mean.
But I want to keep that adoration going for a bit longer, so I’m going to continue to quietly hit that search button when he’s not looking.
Don’t judge me.

    I have two boys (11 and 13) and I found it difficult helping them with their maths homework – particularly as I know they do it differently and it is the method that is just as important as the answer.

    Their school provide us parents with help in understanding – an evening presentation. They also recommended a book called Maths for Mums and Dads by Rob Eastaway and Mike Askew which was a massive help.

    I can still help the 10 year old (although they do long division differently) but the 17 year old is completely on his own. LOL
