Hi everyone! I'm a new member of the Circle of Mom. I really need great mom advice from other mothers, besides my own. I am 18 years old and I have a baby that is 10 months old. This year will be my senior year of highschool. I am having a really hard time chosing whether I should attend highschool this year or instead get my GED. I have researched the GED process extensively and I learned that I can still go to college with this type of completion. I have also read that some colleges complement this achievement because it requires a tremendous amount of study and hard work. Deep down, I feel as if I need to stay home with my son... I want to be the one who takes care of him every day; I do not want any one else watching him for 10 hours out of every day. I'd really appreciate any advice. I have been contemplating this for quite some time.
