*Halle Berry says it’s been quite the struggle homeschooling her two kids amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Oscar-winning actress, who welcomed Nahla, 12, with Gabriel Aubry and Maceo, 6, with Olivier Martinez, told Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday: “What I learned is that when 6-year-olds see other 6-year-olds do , then they do . Like, they sit and they eat because there’s 25 other ones doing it. They stay at their desks and color because there’s 25 other ones doing it. At , there’s not 25 other ones doing it. So, to get them to focus and they’re at but yet they’re at school, it’s been a challenge.”

Berry described sheltering-at-home with her children as “a nightmare.”

“But I have enjoyed having all this extra time with them. We have been making good use of the time when they’re not in school,” she added.

“When I’m not cracking the whip for school, we do have a lot of family time, story time and bonding time that we don’t often get to have, so there is the silver lining,” Berry said.

During a virtual appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s”The Tonight Show” last month, Berry revealed that the valuable lesson she taught her daughter when she had to shave off Nahla’s hair after their daily swimming sessions took its toll on the child’s long locks.

“We’re doing her homework the other night and [Nahla] goes, ‘Mom, I’m scared to tell you this, but touch the back of my head.’ All her hair, which is past her shoulders, has shrunken up into a tight ball that feels like matted fur,” recalled the star, per PEOPLE.”I can’t even get my finger in it, and I’m pulling and she’s screaming.”

Berry said she had no choice but to “shave it off,” explaining that Nahla is “bald in the back” now after the incident.

“She was not cool with that, but it was our only option. But now she gets it,” she told Fallon. “I was like, ‘First of all, maybe you’ll let your mother help you. And second of all, you learned you gotta brush your hair. Every day, you gotta brush your hair.’ “

During their chat, Halle also recalled the time actor Pierce Brosnan saved her from choking on the set of James Bond. Watch/hear her tell it via the clip below:
