Since having kids I've always wanted to study. I could never find the perfect subject or the perfect place. I didn't want to start an online course as I felt that Parker was still a little bit young. This all changed after he turned one and I was looking into different options then but never found anything suitable.
Recently NCC home learning got in touch and asked if I wanted to review a course. I thought this was the perfect opportunity and had a look what they had to offer. They have a whole range of courses and I finally settled on a diploma in child psychology.
I actually did A Level Psychology at college and really enjoyed it. I always enjoyed the child side before I'd even thought about kids. And now I do have children it kind of makes sense. It just feels right.
I'm not sure where it will lead but for now I am very much looking forward to starting the course and learning something new. I promise to not analyse the children at every chance I get but it will be nice to find out a little more about how they work and maybe some tips and tricks to help them learn more.
I will of course be sharing how I get on. The course is 12 months long so I should be finished in January of next year. It seems so far away but with 18 modules I'm going to need all the time I can get.
Mark also started a university course very recently so we are now both studying and hoping it will bring better things for our family.
Have you ever taken an online class?
