Job, kids and College?

I am a single mom to 2 kids and I work full-time. I started college, but was never able to finish because of work and kids. I am wanting to go back and get a degree so I can better our lives. But I just don't know what to do, the programs that I am looking at are all day time classes and my job is day time hours so I can be at home with my kids at night. I am just not sure how to balance school, job and kids with going to school for something I actually want to do, but I can't afford to quit my job. Any advice?

I do it online. It's the only way for me.

Yeah I thought of that, but I can't seem to find a school to take online classes in the program I want to do :(

 Online.  I am almost a year in and it's difficult but manageable.

 Have you looked into another degree or another school?  Most degrees can be completed with evening classes if you're willing to use a long time horizon, like 6-years for a 4-year degree.

You can go to school on your days off.
