Balancing Parenting and the Pursuit of Online Degrees

The gift of parenting comes in all shapes and sizes wrapped with all widths of ribbon. There are more books written about the art of parenting than anything else. And yet, there is no magic formula that answers all the questions parents have when they start their families. Luckily, pursuing a college education while parenting does not necessarily require some exotic skill set.

Are you a mom trying to balance family, husband, and the desire to get an education? It's not easy but neither is changing a poopy diaper at 2 AM. And the fact of the matter is, it is never easy to work your way through university level classes. Great online degrees are attainable for the mom or the dad who never made it through college before life happened. Online college classes are much more flexible than standard higher education institutions where you are required to be in class for face time with the professor. So mom, you have your answer, yes, you can be a mom and fulfill your desire for a college education.

In the evening when your children need help with their homework, you can have your books open as well. It might even help to get them inspired to get their homework done before you do. There are all kinds of ways to parent effectively so go ahead and whip out the books as you’re studying your way through college.

Online colleges are generally chosen by the degree that you want to receive. So for example, if you want to get a degree in the nursing field, you would start your search with “nursing degree online.” University of Phoenix came up as offering a degreed program to get either a bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree in nursing.
