    Default 2012 Studying Parents

    I enrolled 2 weeks ago
    I am finally doing my diploma in Beauty Therapy on campus through Ellabache. I have already obtained my certificates III and IV in Beauty Therapy, but the diploma was put on hold when I had my first son. I think I need to brush up on my skills, it's been a long time since I have done anything apart from being a mum.

    I thought a chat thread for us 2012 studying parents would be a good idea, atleast we would all have something in common

    So who else is studying and what are you studying?

    I am studying next year. I am in 2nd year uni Psych. Though considering a change to Social Work. I have just had a 6 month break so I am debating to take another 6 months or do 1 subject first semester and see how I go. Working 3 days, studying and mothering!

    Sounds like your a pro! working, studying and being a mum. I have a friend that is a Social worker, she said it's great money but not alot of people make a career out of it because apparently it's a very hard job, emotionally alot of people breakdown from some of the stuff that goes on. All the best with which ever path you choose!

    I don't think I'm going to cope, at the least it is going to be very hard and a huge change for me, I've been a stay at home mum since my boys were born, so being away from them 5 days a week is going to be challanging.

    Woohoo! Only 1 year left, how exciting. Would you rather do kindy or primary teaching?

    I'll be continuing with my studies as of semester 2 next year, as I unfortunately have to defer semester 1 as I'm due to have this bub right around exam time and there is no way of giving me an earlier exam and I don't want a later one as I'll be breastfeeding and can't be away from bub for too long as he/she will be so tiny. But come semester 2 I'll be back into studying my BA in psychology criminology & justice through edith cowan university I can't wait, which is crazy because I just had my last exam this afternoon so I should be stoked I have 6 months off I have about another 18 months of study to go until I graduate.

    Good luck to everyone who is beginning their studies though, and those who are continuing!!

    I have applied to study graduate entry nursing next year, and will have 12mth old start some daycare, some time at home with Dad.

    I have previously completed a degree in political studies/sociology while pregnant/nursing/caring for two other children. I studied during the day and visited the daycare at every break, to breastfed, share lunch, change nappy, put to bed etc...I would be up a lot at night essay writing and breastfeeding LOL

    I haven't had to do clinical placements before and not sure exactly what is involved (tried to look it up but very minimal information) - so will be a new challenge.

    Good luck to all the other student-working-nurturing mothers
