  • Maybe ask someone to watch him a couple hours 2-3 days a week so you can study??

  • Wait until he's asleep. I've never had a problem with tests, for college. I have 5 kids(almost 6) and we homeschool.

  • I did all my studying and homework after my babies went to bed.

  • Thats what i've been trying to do but by the time she falls asleep i'm already worn out for the day and i cant concentrate because my brain is telling me to go to bed. Should i take some energy drink or something?

  • Maybe it would work better if you studied in the morning? If my youngest keeps me up I just get up an hour or two early and study then.

  • I work full time and usually some overtime and go to school at night 4 days a week. I have a 7 y/o and a 2 y/o. My dh works 3rd shift so he is never there anyway. I know all about exhaustion. I have still managed to keep a 4.0 so far. I do alot of reading and studying at night either when they are asleep or during my lunch breaks at work. I will also read while we are eating dinner, or I'll put a movie or show on for them to watch to give myself a little time. The studying is scattered but it's working for me. Sometimes I'll go into school 30 min early to have a little extra time also. You can do it.
