This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Ashworth. The opinions and text are all mine.
I currently hold my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology. I have had it for 6 years while I have been married for 12 years, have an 11 year old and a 9 year old.
Continuing education in parenthood is possible and highly doable.
Growing up, my mom pressured me to get good grades; take high school and college classes together; go straight to college after high school.
I tried. I really did. Kind of.
It just wasn’t something I wanted to do. It wasn’t a priority to me. And really, who can blame me? After 12 years of schooling, I just wanted a break.
During said break, I ended up moving out of state; meeting my now husband; starting a family – but that didn’t stop me from getting my “smart paper” aka, my degree.
Just like Ashworth College, I found an online college program that allowed me to learn on my own schedule.
I was still able to work full time; I was able to spend time with my family – importantly, my daughter at the time; I was able to learn from home without the hassle of baby sitters or leaving my baby at home with out me.
Continuing Education in Parenthood
– Pick your area of study (business, creative services, education, etc.)
– Pick your program in your area of study (accounting, criminal justice, early education, etc.)
– Request information, enroll, or call Ashworth College to speak to an admissions counselor.
Ashworth College is flexible with more than 125 programs designed to fit into the lives of its students, not the other way around, allowing them to progress at their own pace and find balance between work, family and education.
They are an accredited college (important to know!) and affordable.
Once you’re enrolled, you will be provided your course and class schedules which allows you time to plan out your class term.
You can plan your work schedule around your classes. You can plan vacation around your classes (I did my schooling on vacation many times.) It is absolutely joy being able to do your learning online and not be restricted with class schedules.
You still have class work, homework, tests, finals, etc. with due dates, but from my personal experience; you are aware of these dates ahead of time which allow you to plan and schedule.
With today’s technology, being a role model for your children and continuing education in parenthood is so much easier than pre-technology!
Don’t let parenthood be your excuse – let it be your reason to continue your education!
