Moms in School

Topic: Moms in School


For Moms that are still in school, it can be difficult to juggle school work and being a mom. I have found some ways that I hope can help you like they have helped me with my schooling.

First, Call in your support, whether its your spouse, your parents, siblings or friends, if you have someone available that can help you with your child so that you can concentrate on your assignment helps you know that they are safe and you get full concentration. 

For Mom's that are home with babies and infants, finding time is hard, especially if your baby is breastfeeding. I have found that putting your child in a bassinet next to the desk or where ever you will be working, lets you keep an eye on your little one while getting assignments done with good focus. Also, nap time is great to use for school time, as you can do larger assignments with minimal interruption.

For moms with toddlers or pre-k aged children, if you can't find a sitter, try putting on their favorite movie and giving  them a snack, it will help you to focus because their mind will be on the movie. You can also use the time when they are having independent play time and nap time.

Some moms have used day cares to help aid them with their schooling, as most day cares accept part time kids that only go for a few hours a day. It can be a great thing to do because that gives you 4 to 5 hours of straight focus to get your work done.

If you guys have any tips you want to add please leave them in the comments below, I know I would love t hear what you guys do to juggle the schooling along with being a mom.
