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.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
