  • I just make it happen we as women just balance it and it all gets done even if I am up cleaning or studying at 2am or even 4am. We make it all work.

  • Congrats, I am currently attending an online school and will graduate in May. I would recommend creating a schedule. Every morning I wake up before my son (mon-fri) and do my homework. Mondays I will due both assignments due one tuesday and thursdays, tuesdays I work on thursdays assignment, wednesday I work on fridays assignments, thursdays and fridays I do the big assignment due on sunday so i can have my weekend without the worry of school. If I happen not to get the assignments done in the morning I will finish them during nap time or after dinner during our relax time. Good luck, hopefully your school has some breaks so you wont feel as burnt out as I do after doing this for a year and a half solid!!

  • I have 3 kids 20mos, 5yr and 6yr. I go FT I am at the local community college for x-ray tech. Its an Associates degree. Our schedules are crazy here but I stay as organized as can be and keep a detailed schedule! The kids have a good routine as far as school work, chores, bedtimes, etc. You must really plan your study time and online classes can be quite time consuming. I have taken my share of them! My program is extremely intense so it can be rough!
