How to pursue a degree while raising a family

Most people would say that it's impossible to balance family and school, but I'm here to tell you that it is possible. It won't be easy, but with a little bit of planning and organization you can succeed. Here are a few tips to help get you started. 

First, make sure that you set realistic goals for yourself. Don't try to do too much at once or you'll quickly become overwhelmed. Try to focus on one or two classes at a time and give yourself plenty of time to study. 

Second, create a schedule and stick to it as closely as possible. This will help ensure that you have enough time for everything that needs to be done. Be sure to include time for studying, cooking dinner, cleaning the house, and taking care of your kids. 

Finally, ask for help when you need it. There's no shame in admitting that you can't do everything by yourself. Ask your spouse, friends, or family members for assistance when needed. With their help, you can manage everything on your plate and still graduate from school with flying colors!

Here are some additional tips and tricks when pursuing a degree and raising kids:

1. Pursue a degree that offers online classes

2. Utilize resources like daycare, grandparents, or friends to help watch your children while you attend class

3. Make a study schedule that works for you and your family

4. Find time during the day when everyone is busy with their own activities to do homework or study for tests

5. Get organized and create a filing system for school papers and documents

6. Celebrate your accomplishments - even the small ones - as a way to stay motivated
