As a mom, you’re probably more concerned with ensuring that your children get a good education. However, did you know that your education level could have an impact on how well your kids do and how high their grades are?
Children who have better-educated parents tend to do better than those who don’t, so if you have been thinking, even idly about returning to education, but you’re worried about doing so now that you’re a mom, don’t dismiss the idea out of hand. In fact, take a look at these very real reasons why moms’ education matters:
Your Education Will Rub Off on Your Kids
Kids with better-educated parents tend to do better, and this is undoubtedly due, at least in part to the human capital factor, whereby you use your education to interact with your kids in a different way. Something as simple as using bigger words or being able to help your kid with his math homework to a greater extent than average can make a huge difference to your child’s education.
Not only that but when your kids see you studying for your online mba in management or to get your nursing degree, they will learn the value of hard work and dedication. This is something that will see them well throughout the whole of their lives.
You Can Teach Your Kids
If you’re one of the many parents who place very little faith in the school system or would prefer to homeschool your kids, well it’s always going to be easier to do that when you have a better education. Sure, it might be tricky trying to study and teach your kids at the same time, but if they’re young, your education will be complete long before theirs and your newly gained study skills and education will help them for the rest of their educational days.
You Deserve to Do What You Love
Just because you’re a mom, doesn’t mean that you should leave your aspirations to one side. In fact, if you want your kids to grow up with a happy, healthy mother who’s in a good place, and you want them to know that they can achieve their hopes and dreams if they’re willing to work for it, going back to education, if it’s something you dream of, even if only so you can take that dream nursing job or get promoted to management, is one of the least selfish things you can do.
It Boosts Your Income
Raising kids isn’t cheap. In fact, the cost of raising a child until they are 18 is estimated to be more than $233,600 in the USA right now. It’s not going to be easy to do that if you’re only earning a small salary. Getting a better education is one of the best ways to boost your income, better provide for your family and live more comfortably.
As you can see, there are lots of very real reasons why moms’ education matters. So, don’t give up on that grad degree or nursing course if you know it’s what you really want. Your whole family will be the better for you taking steps to better yourself.
