Moms Juggle Family and Online Degree

Friday, May 11th, 2007

Moms are natural jugglers; and Mother’s Day honors remarkable women who juggle innumerable tasks every day. These moms are motivated by love and devotion to their families. They sacrificially set aside their own dreams while raising children, including the dream of completing a college education. But thankfully, online degrees make it easier for moms to realize their dream, even in the midst of a busy family life.

Moms who desire to attend college should consider the following:

  • Moms can earn an online degree while their children are in school. During the 13 years between kindergarten and 12th grade, a mom can slowly accumulate enough credits through online classes to graduate from college by the time her first child graduates from high school.
  • A college degree does not have to be costly. A mom can begin her online degree program by taking advantage of inexpensive online classes at the local junior college. Most junior colleges provide online applications and instructions.
  • A mom can delay choosing a career path while taking classes. While completing general education courses like English, history, and speech, a college major can be considered. There is no rush for those who are undecided.
  • It is easy for a mom to begin slowly. There is no need to enroll in more than one online class at a time unless federal financial aid requirements specify otherwise.
  • Moms who need education assistance may receive online help. Most accredited online degree programs offer generous counseling support to online students.
  • A computer with Internet access is easy to find. Those moms who do not have access to a computer at home or on the job can usually reserve computer use at the public library for free; or an inexpensive computer can be purchased on sale.

The years of raising children pass quickly; and there is wonderful satisfaction throughout the journey. And for some moms, attaining a college degree at the same time offers the realization of a lifelong dream.
