Studying as a parent

Having a child is a great joy! 

But of course, combining pregnancy and raising a child with the challenges of studying also requires perseverance and organisational skills. Many diverse tasks such as taking care of a child, desk work, housekeeping, courses and maybe even a job need to be managed.

On the other hand, the time when one is studying might be a convenient biographical timeframe for parenthood and starting a family. Beginnning professional life later and setting the course for your own career might even be more demanding than studying. Balancing professional and family life every day is very challenging.
