I saw this in the Parade section of my newspaper and had to share:
Soccer star David Beckham reportedly told the London newspaper, Sunday Mail , that he finds his 7-year-old son Brooklyn‘s homework confusing. "It’s done totally differently to what I was teached at school," he said. And yes, that’s an exact quote.
To further embarrass the star, the newspaper used the following example of a 7-year-old’s math problems: "Bette went to the shop at 11:45. She came back half an hour later. What time did she come back?" and "What is 12 divided by 3?"
Parade Magazine added that maybe Mr. Beckham is just good at making money, not counting it. Ouch.
