Soccer superstar David Beckham, whose mental agility has been questioned before in the British media, has said his six-year-old son’s maths homework leaves him baffled.
The England captain and Real Madrid midfielder was forced to call on his wife Victoria, a former member of the Spice Girls pop group, to help their son Brooklyn with a school assignment because the footballer found the sums too difficult.
I’m not going to tease a six-year-old who’s having troubles with addition, but a lot of things can contribute to a child’s intellectual inability. It’s not, in other words, always a lack of intellectual rigor. What could be causing “Brooklyn’s” problems? You’d think, with a former Spice Girl for a mom and a dad who revels in his celebrity status among homosexuals, the kid would be pretty stable.
