Stacey Solomon near tears as trolls call her 'too dumb' to homeschool her sons
She was devastated.
Stacey Solomon has opened up about the abuse she received after she revealed that she had decided to homeschool her two children.
The 28-year-old revealed earlier this month that she had taken her sons, Zachary and Leighton, out of mainstream schooling.

The mum explained in her column in The Sun that she had made the decision after noticing some huge changes in her sons, but that “every child is different and therefore responds differently to methods of teaching”.
The Loose Women presenter said on Tuesday that she has been the target of social media abuse ever since her candid admission.
She was left near tears during the episode, as she revealed that one troll had even branded her "too dumb" to teach her sons.
She said on the show:
“I’m usually very good on social media and I think if you’re on there, you put yourself out there for comments and all that.
“But recently I've been quite affected, as people have been saying – ‘You’re so dumb how could you even teach your own kids, you can’t even spell your own name'.
“It really struck a chord with me as for a long time, even as a child, I have come across dumb because of my accent and my personality, and I’ve always been treated that way."
Her co-panelists were quick to hit back at the trolls' comments and re-assure Stacey.

“You are witty, you are smart, and you are a great Loose Woman!”
Meanwhile, Christine Lampard said:
“It's so ridiculous. It's like, I don't know you, and I have no warrant to have an opinion but I’m still going to tell you. I can’t believe people pick their phones up to be horrible!”
