    Default SAHMs that study

    So I finally picked a subject to study online with. But I am finding it hard to fit study time in.
    When I started in September and burnt myself out pretty quick by doing late nights with a teething toddler and getting little sleep. And now with christmas I am finding it hard to get back into.

    For those that did/do online study how do you do it? Does your little one go to daycare (mine doesnt but i am considering it if i find the right place)
    Do you do all your study at night and have a nap when they nap during the day?
    Im after any tips you might have to help organise myself or if you need a bit of morivation as well lets help each other along 😊

    Subbing as this will be me in two months time!! I am thinking I will have to put my toddler in daycare once a week to be able to get most of my study done/listen to lectures etc on that day...

    I am thinking the same thing. I enjoy studying at night as I have no distractions. But atm my subjects have alot of reading and videos which is not great at night as I start to fall asleep 😕

    I'm currently studying my Masters. Started last term for summer semester.
    I have a 3yo. I could not keep up with study without daycare.
    She'll go 2 or 3 days ... DD loves daycare ..and it gives me time to study and do housework stuff.

    I am studying my bachelor of education and have 4 children aged between 3-8. I try to fit in an hour or 2 during the day, more if I have an assessment due and also a few nights a week. Being organised is the key, plan things for your LO to do or study while they sleep or while eating lunch. Luckily for me, 3 are at school and my 3 year old will happily sit and draw or watch tv/play while I study.

    My 2 oldest are in school and last year my youngest was looked after 2.5 days a week by my mum and mil. However that was to attend uni only. All of my study time is at night and on the weekends when hubby is home. I lived off very little sleep and was exaughsted but I did it and am now entering the second year of my midwifery degree.
