Parenting while in Education

Being a parent coupled with being a student sounds great, but in fact it is not so bright. “Student parent” faces many difficulties, the biggest of which is a lack of time. To the usual cooking, cleaning, baby-sitting, keeping the house adds tons of home assignments. Besides, you want to spend time with your husband, friends, devote time to hobbies and even doing nothing. At that point, you do one of two things. Either you give up and abandon or postpone education or you learn to manage your time and efforts. If you choose the second alternative, we are here to help.

Tip #1. Plan Ahead. Henceforth planning is your best friend. Keep a diary with the “to do list” and hours when it should be done. It is also advisable to have a special whiteboard with calendar and stickers to have your plan in front of your eyes. Leave some spare hours for pleasure and relaxation. Stick to your plan! Don’t invent excuses for yourself; it is your personal challenge and you should win!

Tip #2. Ask for help. If you are too tired or don’t have enough time to do several things simultaneously (like cooking, looking after a kid and writing an essay) ask for help. Otherwise, you’ll feel crashed, stressed out and will be unable to concentrate. Friends, husband, parents, day care services for children will do. In addition, there are many Internet services, offering help with different kinds of writing assignments, for example For a low price, you get an essay, report, assessment, article, research project and what not written by a professional. Besides, you can get a professional helpful advice as to you work. You can make your own research and find similar websites.  As you see, home assignment is not a problem as long as you have Internet access.

Tip #3. Schedule “study hours” for you and your kids. If you have school-aged children, suggest them to study together. In this way, you can get closer with them and see how they succeed in class. Besides, you’ll have several hours of silence.

Tip #4. Socialize. Don’t become reserved, don’t be frozen up inside your home! Take time for entertainments. Combining parenting and education does not mean that you should not go out with friends, make journeys and visit spa-centers. Also try to find local or Internet communities for those who are in a similar position. Share experience, communicate with those who surely understands you. Who knows, sometimes it is a way to meet a lifetime friendship.

Nothing is so scary as it seems to be. It is your experience of trials and errors, so don’t try to be perfect.
