Top Tips for Moms Taking Online Degrees

 Online degrees can often be the best option for moms who want to get back into education due to their flexibility and the wide range of subjects that there are available for them to study. However, online degrees are not always plain sailing, and to make sure that you can get the grade that you deserve, read on for some top tips for moms interested in taking online degrees. 

  • Choose the Right Degree

Choosing the right online degree is vital to your success. Picking a subject that you are passionate about and that you have a natural talent for will ensure that you can breeze through your course and ensure that you have the motivation to continue even when you do struggle. If you are looking for an online degree that is perfect for moms, a Bank Street Early Childhood Leadership certificate can help you to advance your career in teaching, build upon your previous qualifications, and allow you to get a career that can be easily juggled with the commitments of parenting. 

  • Balance Family and Study

Although you might be aware of the importance of a work/life balance, it is also important to have a great study/life balance too, especially if you have children. It is possible to have the best of both worlds, though. You can do this by creating a schedule that will allow you to complete your assignments around the demands of your children. For instance, you might be able to study during naptime, or when your kids are at school, freeing up your evenings to spend time with your loved ones. 

  • Speak to Your Kids

You also need to make sure that your kids understand the importance of your study time, and the best way to do this is to sit them down and speak to them about your course and what they can do to help you. For instance, you might ask them not to interrupt you at certain times of the day, or to speak to another family member about any issues that they have. This can help to prevent them from feeling rejected or ignored when you are busy finishing up your work for the day.


  • Take Time for Yourself

Most importantly, you need to take time for yourself. This will enable you to avoid burnout, which can leave you feeling unmotivated and prevent you from being able to produce the best work possible. 

  • Get Support

Taking a college course is never an easy ride, and this means that it is important that you can get the appropriate amount of support. For instance, you should speak to family and friends to see whether they can help you with childcare arrangements, and speak to your partner about whether they might be able to change their working hours or start working from home to split the childcare requirements between you. You may also consider looking for financial and pastoral support from the college that you are signing up to if you are struggling.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!  

Harlem Globetrotters- A night of Fun! Save 20%

  If you only came here for the discount code then there ya go!  Save 20% at checkout with the code: USFAM!   I will admit that prices seem very costly in my opinion so hopefully this 20% off will really help you.   I was blessed to be able to promote this discount and post about my experience to get free tickets for my family.   I am not sure our budget would be able to afford the tickets... family of four and ticket prices we got were over a $100 each ticket... so it can make for a pricey night.   Then add in if you get snacks, a ball, or a jersey you could spend a hefty paycheck in one evening of fun.    With that said, my family did have a good time.   We saw good talent, we had lots of laughs, we cheered, and we enjoyed watching with each other.   Some would say the Harlem Globetrotters are like the equivalent of WWE but with basketball.   There is a storyline within the game, which helps get the crowd going and cheering.   My 11 year old had the most fun!   He was standing up and
