Parents going back to college
My youngest has been out of college for 2 years. Somehow, I'm not feeling the life with an eye towards retirement and am enrolling this fall to get my doctorate (I have a master's and a post-masters certification). Perhaps it's because I have parents with dementia and I feel I need to continue not only the life of the mind, but to contribute to the world with meaningful research. I will also continue to work full time and take 6-9 credits per semester. Anyone else go back to school? Perhaps you should talk me out of it.102 replies
