  1. I didn’t think I could get my husband to support me with my online learning but it just took some serious talking with him and you know what? He has been making it very easy for me to balance everything. My point is, you are absolutely right to keep the family in the loop. That way, they’ll know how to support you. Great article!

  2. I’ve been toying with the idea of going back to school. With two young kids (ages 4 and 6), I can’t afford to really think about it seriously. I’m glad I came across your article because I’ve just realized that I can actually do it. Thanks for the tips and most specially, the motivation. As a stay-home mom, I needed all that.

  3. I’m glad I saw your article. I have been contemplating on going back to school but with three young kids, it seems pretty impossible. I never really thought about online colleges but after reading your article, it really seems to be a “guilt-free solution” for moms like me. Thank you.
