How do I give my son the best education whilst being a single mom and being responsible for almost everything. Taking care of my family (mom, grandmother,brother and other relatives) - i know I have to put my needs and my son's needs first. Even if I want to sell the house and move out and getting a place for my son and I, sounds like the ideal option to go for and if i do go for that option, I'm sure I would be able to enroll my son in one of the best school's in Cape Town. But If I make that decision my family will have no where to go. On top of everything else my son's dad does not support me enough financially. I'm so stressed out, not sure what I should do...

Why is the whole family your responsibility? Why can't your Mother support her children?

Hi Evelyn. Thank you for the advice, I really appreciate it. Yes, I live in South Africa, Cape Town. I will definitely try and speak to family because I know that I have to make a change. Seeing that my son doesn't do very well @ school. Thanks again.

I am not sure where you live but if its Cape Town, I assume South Africa? All I can advise you is to do what you can with what you have. Sometimes those "best schools" are not all they are cracked up to be. Here in the United States, we have everything from public schools to private schools to private church schools. Its just up to the parents what they want for their child. Some even school their kids at home. I would check out the school with care and ask a lot of questions. I would also make sure I could met their expectations and rules as well. Talk to your family and get their ideas on this and consider them and your research and then make a good choice.
