Once again schools have closed nationwide, forcing parents to turn their hands to schooling.
And McFly's Tom Fletcher spoke for many mums and dads when he shared the realisation on Instagram: "I am a terrible teacher."
His blunt message, on what for many was their first day of home-schooling this year, came as celebrities and working parents alike struggling to combine their own work with that of their children.
Joining Tom on the front lines of the home-school struggle was I'm A Celebrity queen Jacqueline Jossa, who shared footage of her children.
But unlike Tom she admitted her daughter Ella liked being at home.
"She's actually done really really well," said Jac, who was still in her pyjamas at 11am as she played teacher.

As a former Blue Peter presenter, you might expect Helen Skelton to have plenty of double sided sticking tape to help her day along.
Instead, she shared a picture of her head in her hands, writing simply: "Teachers I salute you. Been at this since 8am."

She shared the struggle of many of also watching her preschooler while teaching a school age child, explaining: "Time enough for dad to get home to distract the minor (otherwise known as the three year old of 500 questions)."
"Clearly having the time of his homeschool life," he joked.

Meanwhile, former Strictly Come Dancing star Kristina Rihanoff was attempting to work while home-schooling her daughter.
She shared: "This was my reality today, running 2 businesses online and looking after Mila."

Another parent to take to Instagram was Katie Price, who proudly showed off her 18-year-old son Harvey's work.
Harvey, who has partial blindness, autism and Prader-Willi syndrome, had drawn the alphabet and carefully illustrated every letter.

The proud mum-of-five told fans: "My Harvey is so clever and artistic look what he has done this evening and spent the day doing it.
"Unfortunately he doesn’t understand why he can’t go to school so I asked him to do something for me to put on Instagram as he loves the praise he gets and when I read your messages."
Not so positive was Antony Costa, who looked frustrated
