I'm 20 years old I live alone with my 5 year old son. I'm trying to go to school for my LVN its full and I also work full. I have no idea how I'll be able to balance it. Any advice?! Or where or how to even start to organize it

I like watching YouTube videos from other healthcare moms like A Little Bit of Lacquer. They talk a lot about time management, balancing studies/work with parenting. As long as you have childcare in order, everything is manageable with practice. I think the tip I hear most often is to study in short bursts; 5 minutes in line at the grocery store, 10 minutes while the food is cooking on the stove, etc. Because it's hard to get a whole hour to study sometimes =)

Thank you I will look into the channel! It is just so hard I haven't even started school yet because I work full time to afford living on my own and then trying to even make room to go to school is so hard trying to figure out how to work a bit less so I can go to school and be ok financially still😔
