HOMESCHOOLING can be a daunting task especially when you’re a mum-of-21 like Sue Radford.
The mum to Britain’s biggest family, who is currently expecting her 22nd child, has been faced with distance learning as many parents have been during the coronavirus lockdown.
Sue, 44, from Morecambe, Lancs, shared a snap of her very organised work station for nine of her younger children.
James, 16, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, eight, Casper, seven and Hallie, four are all distance learning from the Radford family home.
Taking to her Instagram account, the busy mum, who is now 35 weeks pregnant, posted a photo of them hard at work.
Captioning the post she joked: “Day one of homeschooling there probably won’t be a day two.”
And fellow parents were quick to offer her sympathy as they attempt to homeschool their own kids.
Commenting on the post, one wrote: “I thought I had it bad with 3!!! Good luck!!!!!”
Agreeing a second added: “Wow! Take my hat off to you ! I have 4 and it’s something.”
“Wowsers, you've done well!” commented a third.
Sue and her family are currently in isolation due to fears over the coronavirus.
The expectant mum was due to be induced in just a few weeks but now is concerned she may have to cancel her birth.
She said: "For the past kind of, I would say, since the middle of last week, I was thinking do I still go for my induction in the middle of next week's time.
"I don't know what to do for the best really? Do I cancel it? "It's not the end of the world if I cancel it.
"I might postpone it for another week, I'll see."
The Radfords are Britain's biggest family, with Noel and Sue parents to Chris, 30, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 24, Jack, 22, Daniel, 20, Luke, 19, Millie, 18, Katie, 17, James, 16, Ellie, 14, Aimee, 13, Josh, 12, Max, 11, Tillie, nine, Oscar, eight, Casper, seven, Hallie, four, Phoebe, three, Archie, two, and Bonnie, one.
Sadly, the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
They also have three grandchildren – who are Sophie's kids – Daisy, six, Ayprill, four, and Leo, two.
Millie is also expecting a baby.
The couple famously don’t claim any benefits apart from Child Benefit and rely on Noel’s bakery business to make ends meet.
