Reasons Parents Further Their Education
As a dad or mom, there are many reasons why you may want to go back to school. Let’s see the common reasons why parents further their Education and why you should do the same:
- You were denied the opportunity to go to school when you were younger.
- You are going back to school to acquire skills for a better job.
- People have been intimidating you because you are not a graduate.
- Your husband wants you to go back to school
- You need it for a good job or to retain your current job.
- Lower risk of unemployment
- It has always been your dream to go back to school. Now, you want to go back to school as a personal fulfilment.
- You dropped out of school earlier for reasons, and you want to go back.
- You want to be a great example to your children. You want them to learn from you and to understand that education is important.

a. Learn Time Management
Time is the biggest asset given to us by God. What you do with time determines your level of success and achievement in life. Time is not a handset but an asset.
One major feature of a parent is responsibilities. You just have a whole lot of things to take care of. You need to work, take care of your husband/wife and as well take care of your children. In summary, you don’t have time.
However, you need to create time. If you must further your education, you need to create time for studies. There is no shortcut to success (Unless you are paying someone to take Waec for you).

d. Private Tutorials If Necessary
Since it’s been long you finished secondary school or dropped out, it may be necessary to get someone who will put you through.
I won’t advice you to attend public tutorials as a parent. If you can’t read and understand on your own, meet a neighbour, mentor or pay someone to lecture you.
e. Follow Up Jamb Latest News
Information is the key. Since you have made up your mind to write Waec and/or Jamb, you need to stay updated on the latest Waec and/or Jamb news. Know when registration is starting, when examination is starting, how to register and so on.

Best School To Attend As A Mom Or Dad
In this case, I will advise you not to attend any University or Polytechnic that is very demanding unless you are going for a part-time programme.
You may be wondering, how do I know that a school is very demanding? It is not far fetched. Most Top Federal and State Universities are very demanding. Try a school that is not very demanding or competitive.
Recommended Course To Study As A Parent
A mom called me few days ago that she wants to study Pharmacy in UNILAG. I was actually against it. However, she insisted that God is on her side and she can do it.
The truth is, there are courses you shouldn’t study as a parent. Not because you are dull but because they would require too much from you.
Professional courses like Medicine, Engineering, Law, Pharmacy, etc are very difficult to study. Since you all you want is to get the degree, why not find a simple course and study? An decent ART or Education course would do.
Part-Time Or Full-Time Programme?
As a parent, whether to go for a part time or full time programme depends on the nature of your work.
If you are self employed and has a whole lot of time to attend classes, full time programme is recommended because you will graduate earlier.
For a mother whose children are still under four years, you can’t leave them and be going for classes. They need your care. In this case, part-time programme is recommended for you.
Also, as a woman whose husband wants to further her Education, full time programme is not bad for you.
