i am a student but i am already a mom. i am having hard time to study because since my son is only one year old, i need to get him sto sleep earlier so i can study well. i am taking up nursing and i am on my 3rd year now. if my son is asleep, then i can study well because he cannot disturb me. if he is awake, usually he wants me to play with him. my mom looks after him too but not everytime so it's good if she is there. do you have any suggestions what is the best thing to do?

Oh! That's a great task for you to accomplish everyday. To tell you, I was so proud of that despite your situation, you still do continue your study. Good luck!

I know how you feel..... i'm also a 3rd year nursing student and a mom of 2 boys.... one is a 3yr old and the other is only 6 months...... I am also having a hard time studying and concentrating specially here at home.... I hope you can find a solution to your present dilemma. I am lucky my husband can stay at home most of the time because his work does not impose strict working hours. Hang in there.... you can make it.....God will help us attain our goals for our children. He will give us the strength to overcome any obstacles on our way. Let us just pray that we and our loved ones stay healthy. God Bless!!!

I wonder where the dad is! As a mom, it might be best to take care of your kid first and finish your studies, second. Your son needs your attention. It's my personal view and you have your own decision. You can have some part time activities while at home!

the dad is not here, he is working far from us... he is a nurse and i am taking up nursing too. he just visits us here once in a month for 2-3days in his days off. yes, i hope my son is ok that i am going to school and that after school then i can attend to his needs.

I think you can rent a dry nurse to take care of your child , and then you will have more time to study well .
