He/She said my best bet was to get....

a MRS degree! I posted somewhere the amount of children that I had and what I like to do and what I do now. I asked what would be a good degree for me (Bachelors or Masters) and that bastard told me nothing and how low my life will continue to be. How it doesnt look good for me because I was a teenage mom.(My son is graduating High School on June 3rd and I had given my age, so thats he/she knew) I cant believe that people could be so mean and cruel. I want to go back to college and he just shot me down like i was nothing and just because I have children, i could never be good at anything worth doing. I mentioned that i work from home and my skille (im know im not stupid in the least) but still i dont have a degree and that bothers me. My rant is over, but i know this will stick in my head all nite. I do have 7 children that I take damn good care of, that doesnt make me useless when it comes to the outside world, what do you think?

  • I think whoever told you that are idiots! I say go get your degree and dont worry about the naysayers! It don't matter when you had your kids or how many you have. Just so what you have to do

  • You can't really get a Masters without a bachelors anyway.. The schooling requirement basically demands it lol.. I would start with my BA and go from there. If you want to do stuff from home you can get your associates in Medical Billing and such.. But, you want a BS or MA so I would go BA. Look into the different schools and see if they have a BA program that you like!

  • Why are you letting this awful person dictate how you feel? You may want to consider therapy, to work on your self-esteem issues
