So I have a job interview and I hope to be starting school again when the next term comes up in December.

The school schedule is mon threw thurs 715-530.

I don't absolutely need to work but it would be nice to have s few hundred extra. But if I work while doing school I will like literally never see my kids.

Given your vocabulary and grammar, I strongly encourage you to go back to school.

Your kids will still be there when you finish, and you might just inspire them to continue their education.  If it was important enough to sacrifice your time, it just might be important enough for them as well.

This is why I haven't decided if I want to go back to school or not. Can you shorten you class schedule at all?

No I can't. It's a private jr college and the program will be completed in 16 months. I will graduate with an A.S.

It certainly is a balancing act. Sine the program is only 16 months I would power through it knowing that at the end I will be a better provider for my children. You will also be teaching them the value of an education. Children whos parents are college graduates are more likely to be graduates themselves.

Maybe babysit for someone. You can still spend time with your children.

I wasn't being a bitch - I was giving you the reason why I thought you should continue school.  You asked for opinions.  I supplied one.

That's been my thought too! Grrr but my dad has his masters and I just now decided to go to college at age 26. So not sure how much influence that has On a child.
