Online classes give me the flexibility I need to balance comforting my daughter when her toddler explorations land her on her butt, without missing important milestones or due dates. I can pick up or put down my text book or assignment when I need to change her diaper or refill her sippy and pick it up again without issue when she goes down for a nap or gets utterly absorbed in "Little Baby Bum" songs. They also give me the ability to work at my own pace and complete as many assignments as I competently can in a shorter amount of time than a traditional school setting allows for, which ultimately gives me more time to teach my daughter how to say "please" and "thank you," so long as I remember to check in with the discussion boards once a week.— Jaymi, M., BA in Social Work, Brandman University
