Make your classes your highest priority.If youve got children, I understand that this isnt always possible. Children should always come first. But if you dont show up for your classes, youre not getting that education we discussed in No. 1.Make sure youve got a good plan for seeing that your children are cared for when youre scheduled to be in class, and when you need to study. It really is possible to raise children while youre going to school. People do it every day.
