I am a single mom with 3 girls (10,4,and 2). I go to vocational school to become a legal assistant. About a month and a half ago I decided to add a part tiem job to my list of things "to do." It went from bad to worse. I was glad to be making extra money and the job was cool, but my kids were always mad when I went to work and started to rebel with my parents (who watch them.)My grades also went down and I didn't have time for my man. It was all bad. Now I feel better because I have less things to do. My grades will go back up and my kids will behave better now that they can see me more. What's your story?

I was taking up my Masteral degree course when I had to stop because of my baby. I wanted to achieve more in life, professionally but the baby had to be taken cared of personally by me.

That is how I feel, too. My parents tried to take care of my kids, but because of their health, it is too hard. They didn't want to tell me, though. I had to find out when my boyfriend told me after spending some time at my house during the week. I am still in school, but I had to quit the part-time job which means less Christmas pesents, but their health and safety is the best gift to them in the long run!

When we were married, it was agreed that I would work for a while, but then I found I could not get pregnant, so I decided to quit work. I figured that stress and that if I could not get pregnant it might be because God thought that I was more interested in making money than starting a family. I quit work and found that I really loved keeping house than I did going to an offic every day. I have worked from home and am much happier even though we really had to struggle with money problems.
