Halle Berry Says Homeschooling Her Two Kids Is a "Nightmare": They're "Not Learning Anything"
Both Bush and Lilit, a dancer, have been helping out to homeschool the children, as learning institutions remain closed through the end of the academic year — and even their toddler has had to participate.
"It doesn't matter what age you are in this house," Bush jokes of Agyemang. "He's got to work."
Lilit tells PEOPLE that during the pandemic, she and Bush have had to adjust their parenting styles to prevent their stress levels from affecting their kids.
"Our patience had to develop a lot more than it was. We have to learn how to be a lot more patient with each other and with the kids, because being with them all day long can push you to another level, stress wise," she says. "We just simply cannot allow that to translate to the kids."
To combat that, she says she and Bush both give each other time off to step away and decompress. "Then when we come back to the kids, we're at our best level," Lilit adds.
The mom of three says that though each child is very different, their one common thread is that they take after their athlete dad — especially while cooped up in the house all day.
"They're all active," she says. "They're all athletic, obviously — that's a mandatory in the house. Everybody's got to stretch, everybody's got to exercise. That helps a lot to kill that energy during the day so they're good to go to sleep."
