Sahm and "college" **edit

Almost all my sahm friends take back to back college programs and I think they do it because they're bored. Wasting their husbands money on things they won't even use. And from schools that probably don't mean crap to employers. Like Penn Foster. Like wtf are you going to do with a certificate from Career Institute???

If you were serious about getting an education, you should have gotten one before you got married or before you had kids. And get it from a legit school!

*eta: In the last part I was generalizing all sahm who go for their educationan after marriage, i apologize. I was commenting on the sahm moms I know in the beginning of the post.

I agree. Then the husband is saddled paying back these loans and the wife wonders why they are financially strapped.

I'm going back to school this fall. Dh is happy to foot the bill since it's something that's important to me.

Why all the hate, OP?

I disagree somewhat. A smart younger SAHM should get an education while the kids are young if they plan on going back.
