Little Girl Crying Over Homework Sayings

Sometimes, the innards of parenting are best kept private. We all know it can be hard, but keeping it within the confines of the household prevents people from judging a situation that they have no personal bearing with. Reality star Draya Michele found this out the hard way when she took to Instagram with complaints about refusing to sign off on her 13-year-old son Kniko’s homework. The subsequent Twitter backlash was almost legendary.

Kniko’s assignment was to memorize a four-minute speech and be able to recite it, requiring as much practice at home as in school. His teacher required him to have a parent sign off to prove he practices at home (five times a day, according to her complaint). After days of hearing the speech, Draya exploded on Instagram about the assignment and asked her followers what they thought.

It started with a screenshot of a text conversation between her and her son. “Mom are you for real I didn’t get a note card and now I’m not getting those points” Kniko sent to her. Draya quickly responded back with gusto. “Smh. Imma write a rude note,” she relayed. “Should I say what I really want to say? Cuz we can take it there."

The conversation itself wasn’t indicative of any lacking parenting, just being a regular back-and-forth between child and parent. But when paired with the lengthy rant in the picture caption, things started to get a little hazy. “I’m all for helping my child with his homework, but at this point, she has him harassing me with this speech,” she complained. “I’m hearing it 2x a day for a month straight. I’m finna memorize it. ... Tell your teacher I’m done with this. It’s not my damn homework. But it feels like it. What ya’ll think?”

She responded to someone’s comment, clarifying exactly why she was upset. “I’m not annoyed of signing,” she began. “I’m annoyed of him feeling the need to read it to me everyday.”

The good folks over on Twitter got a hold of her post and had a field day with it.

The jokes that came from the situation were just as thrashing.

Poor kid. Kniko, if you ever need someone to practice your speech in front of, I’m here.
