Are You Smarter Than a First Grader?

Is it just me, or is kids' homework a little harder these days?

Moms and dads, I know you feel me on this one... What is it with kids' homework these days?!

Our son is in first grade, and this marks a new chapter in parenthood. The Homework Chapter. And if the first couple weeks are an indicator, this one could be a doozy.

The other day I was helping him with his math work when I came across a problem that had me scratching my head. So I did what any modern parent would do: I took it to social media.

Of course I didn't give him the answer, but I had to know if I was crazy, or if homework these days really is that much harder than it was for us.

I'll let you decide.

In the meantime, send all homework tips here! I may share some of the responses here or on my social channels!
