While it's great to get involved and help your kids learn, the homework struggle is so very, very real when you're a parent. As we near the end of the school year, we'd like to take a moment to acknowledge the hilarious parents on Twitter who have given spot-on descriptions of the homework process. And remember, homework-free evenings are almost here.

It took all my self-control not to shout "F*ck, yeah!" when my 4th grader told me they were done with homework for the year.— Mommy, for real. (@MommyisForReal) May 7, 2016
Hard to keep up the 'Daddy knows everything' pretence when you score 3 out of 5 on the 4yo's homework.— Mark, Sonny & Luca (@sonnyandluca) May 14, 2015
6 doing homework: mom, how much is 15-6? 11?— IAMTHEMILK (@KatiaDBE) March 23, 2016
6: 10? 9? 8?...
Me: what is your system?

Something I've learned as a parent is that doing homework sucked when I was a kid, but forcing your own kid do homework sucks so much worse— Abe Yospe (@Cheeseboy22) May 3, 2016
Listening to my kids argue about who has the most homework tonight sounds like I need to make a quick trip to the liquor store.— Sarcastic Mommy (@sarcasticmommy4) January 5, 2016
I have a pretty good career in business considering it just took me longer to check my kid's math homework than it took her to do it.— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) April 20, 2016

Parents: don't give your child the answers to his homework. He needs to learn on his own that you don't know what you're talking about.— Must Be 18 To Meh (@TheAlexNevil) October 21, 2015
Doing homework with my kids reinforces what they learned in school each day and also that I f*cking hate doing homework.— Kim Bongiorno (@LetMeStart) November 9, 2015
