For the Kid's Sake!
This is just going to be a quick post to highlight that studying has enormous benefits for a mum’s children. I will add more details to this later but I want to put this on for now just to get things started. Many of the women I have spoken with indicated that they felt their own educational efforts helped their kids with:
Appreciating educational opportunities
The rewards of hard work and persistence
Practical things – like understanding more about particular subject matters
Another benefit that stood out was that children of mum’s who study are presented with additional opportunities to practice the skills of independence and resilience. I will write more on these skills, as will my guest poster Dr Monika Wiedig-Allison.
