Most parents don’t think much of it when it comes to helping their kids with homework, and may even take it for granted. However, when you are a parent that is away from their child, this can mean everything in helping them to do the smallest things. In the video, the father is getting to do homework with his daughter, as she shows him the math problems that she is working on as he helps her to understand and figure out the problems as she holds the assignment up for him to see. Along with helping with homework, they talk about the future and that she’ll have to go to college, her dad says especially if she wants to be a graphic designer like he wanted to do, and also they talk about what college she wants to go to.
