I'm a single dad to two great boys, ages 12 and 9. I also work a full time managment position, so I go to school part time. It can be done. I started three years ago and I'm still alive, and more importantly, my sons still love me. I put them first, then the job, and then school. You have to be very organized and efficient with time. The first year takes some adjustment, but after you have a couple semesters under your belt, you will become very skilled at figuring out what your professors want to see on the exam.
