  • My daughter doesn't have kids but she can't get easily to college so she's doing distant learning. Even four year colleges offer that. Still put your kids in care and you'll still have an easier time in classes cause it'll all be done online you won't have to fight for a parking spot in bad weather and walk miles to your buildings. Some tests are done online too and other classes for tests only you'll have to go to campus. Look into it, it'll work for you.

  • I did it with two small kids, prego and separated from my dead beat abusive (now) x. Just think of time management. You can do this. Do homework while on campus or at least while the kids are in daycare. Do all work immediately after class so you don't get distracted and forget. It will be fine.

  • I had my daughter in the middle of the semester by c-section and still managed to pull it off. I'm sure you can do it:-) It would be really nice if you could do the online classes but keep in mind if you're not very good at managing your time they might not be right for you. It takes a lot of effort to keep up with an online class (for me it was anyways) and IMO it would just be easier to physically go to class and have someone watch your kids:-) Plus it gives you a reason to leave the house!

    Good luck! :-)
