My poor sister, she works, goes to school, and handles her son by herself. (so it seems) my bil doesn't really help unless its to complain about the house not being picked up or wanting to take care of my nephew. She has so much on her mind. I feel bad for her. She is debating on dropping school. ( she wants to be a nurse and has been in school for 3 yrs trying to accomplish this one or 2 classes at a time) She's been having a hard time studing and wants to just flunk out so she can take it again.( this would be the 2nd time she has done this with a class) She's beating herself up about doing this. She's taking physiology and microbiology.
My question is what advice should i give her? I think she should keep trying, but she feels that she shouldn't be taking them more then once, and feels really bad about it.
Would you keep taking a class as many times needed to pass or just flunk out??

She needs to sit down and talk to her DH. She needs to let him know where she is at and how she feels. Then if he doesn't grow up and pitch in, she might want to consider some time away. He is taking her for granted and she's allowing it. She needs to stand up for herself or she is going to get lost. Or she could consider quitting her job, see what her DH feels about that. Also, you might be able to help a little bit. Try making a meal for on a day that she has class or come over and help her pick up. I don't want this to seem like I am laying anything on you, but it might make her feel better if she had some help from her family who loves her. BTW- It might be that your BIL resents her going to school. Maybe he feels that school is taking away from the time she could be at home and has decided that he will make it more difficult for her. Tell her good luck.
