    Dannii Minogue has “struggled” with home schooling

    The ‘This Is It’ hitmaker admitted she has been a “really bad” teacher to 10-year-old Ethan – who she has with former partner Kris Smith – while schools have been closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, and she gets particularly frustrated by maths


    She told HELLO! magazine: “I am really bad at being a teacher – it’s not for me.

    “Maths gets me more frustrated than any other subject; I have to remind myself how to do things like long division, then try to explain it to Ethan and he sees me struggling with it.

    “I am exhausted by the end of the day.”

    Dannii hopes to keep working well into the future, but her main goal is to successfully navigate parenting a teenager.

    She added: “I don’t have a list, but I’d like to still be doing entertainment TV and continue long-term designing with QVC.

    “My biggest goal for the future is being able to parent a teenager.

    “He’s 10 now, so it’s not far off. Ethan is still so adorable and just starting to become a little man, but he still loves cuddles and says, ‘I love you.’

    “I just want to be calm and be able to deal with the teen years. He’s such a good little buddy, I love spending time with him.

    “As long as we can still have fun together, everything’s going to be fine.”

    Dannii turns 50 in October but doesn’t want a big celebration.

    She said: “I want to celebrate without the pressure of a party on my actual birthday.

    “I don’t want a big crazy party with everyone trying to be there. I am usually working on my birthday so I’ve never really celebrated it like that.”
