THE coronavirus crisis has not only confined millions of Brits to their homes – but it's also meant parents have had to start homeschooling our little ones for the first time ever.
Well if you're struggling to adapt to life as a part-time teacher and full-time parent, then you can rest assured that you're not the only one.

Posting on her Instagram stories yesterday, mum-of-three Stacey Solomon revealed she'd forgotten to give her sons lunch.
The mum shared a photo of Zachary, 12, Leighton, seven, and 10-month-old Rex happily tucking into their dinner of marmite sandwiches last night.
She wrote: "I actually forgot to feed my children lunch today. They had a late breakfast and didn't moan for anything so I just carried on with the day. Happy homeschooling everyone!"
Earlier this week, the Loose Women star shared a colour co-ordinated timetable she'd made for her eldest sons' studies which included a lunch break at 12pm.
The time table included curriculum work that schools will be sharing with parents to help them teach their children – as well as free play, outdoor learning and Stacey's "mum time" from 4pm onwards.
In an attempt to stay organised while she's looking after the kids at home, Stacey prepped her sons' ham-and-cheese bagels for the week ahead and put them in the freezer.
Sharing her top homeschooling tips, the star has also been encouraging her sons to take part in Joe Wicks' virtual P.E lessons.
She filmed her two older boys Zach and Leighton doing star jumps to Kriss Kross’ Jump, and her partner Joe Swash could even be seen joining in.
Tagging Joe, she wrote: “This is amazing Joe! Taken so much pressure off, thank you so much.
The mum-of-three then moved on to academic learning, but took a realistic approach, allowing her sons to sit on the floor to work and accepting they wouldn’t get everything done.
She said: “I can’t get them to sit at the table so I’m just going with it. I’ll probably get 30mins- 1 hour MAX of this so don’t beat yourself up or worry.”
