I am planning on taking the LSAT on September 27 but I am having a big problem with preparing for the test. Let me give some background first, I am not in school. I graduated from undergrad in 2010. I am currently unemployed and I live with my family (mom, dad, brother, niece, puppy, cat). My niece is 5 and needs a lot of attention. Mom works at home for the family business. So most days it's just me, mom, and my niece. Mom seems to think since I am unemployed I have no responsibilities and nothing to take care of on my own. My niece doesn't understand privacy and silence. So between my mom not realizing the importance of the LSAT and having to be with my niece a lot it's been difficult to prepare for the LSAT. I've tried explaining to my family how important the LSAT is with little success. I've tried compromising by saying I need to study a few hours a day everyday. That attempt was better than trying to explain but it still didn't go very well. I get made to feel guilty if I study all day and by time I get those few hours to study I am exhausted. I wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions on how to deal with this or knew of any articles/literature I can give my family. Thanks.
