Really you cant, but at the sametime you need to take it one day at time. Stress is nothing to play with to be honest with you I was stress medication that took me away from my son for 1 week. You have to remember that you need to be here for your children and if you stressing all the time that will not be good. I work, go to school and I have a 5 year old child so I can understand where you are coming from. For me to continue I eat right for the most part and take my vitamins to help me a little. Try to not rush life it will come remember to always put the Lord first in everything you do no matter how small or big it is. I wish the best for you and your children...God Bless!

I was a single mom, full time student, and full time employe until December of last year. My job closed the doors so now it is just the two. It can be a very stressfull situation at times. I tried to find time to do my school work when my daughter went to bed or was napping. Just work with your schedule and see what works for you the best; juggle things until you find the solution that is the easiest for you. It is hard, although it can be done.

One way that I manage is that I have a job that allows me to do my school work whenever there's down time. I also start my shift before our son even thinks about waking up so I can spend more time with him in the afternoon/evening. I also started taking vitamins which has really helped with me being tired all of the time.

Honestly you can't. I just did the same thing for 3 months straight and no matter what you do it seems like its never enough. You're gonna stay tired. U have to put yourself on a schedule where your kids come first even though your doing something for the better. Really all you can do is pray. I already know how you feel. Your break is coming.
