Watch Jason Momoa Talk About Homeschooling on Ellen

Jason Momoa Confessed His Homeschooling Struggles: "I'm Like the PE Coach"

Jason Momoa might've been undefeated in battle as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, he might've ruled Atlantis as Aquaman, but his biggest challenge is one his biceps can't help him with, and that's homeschooling. The actor recently chatted with Ellen DeGeneres during an at-home edition of her daytime talk show, and Jason kept it real about his struggles with homeschooling his and Lisa Bonet's two kids, 12-year-old Lola and 11-year-old Wolf.

"Thank god they have their teachers and much respect," he said, expressing that their lessons go over his head. "They don't go to me for anything. I'm like the PE coach. 'Get your ass outside. Wanna go rock climb? Skateboard?' But that's about it." Well, we've seen his rock climbing videos and we'd be more than happy to take his gym class!

Although it's such a scary time in the world, Jason acknowledged how grateful he is to be able to be home with his family, and that the kids are appreciating it too. "My son Wolf was already being homeschooled so it was easy for him, and they have time to check in with their friends, but they're loving having me home," he said, adding that they've been spending time on their skateboard ramps, climbing walls, and just enjoying being with each other. Check out the video above and see Jason talk about homeschooling around the 2:40 mark.
