I've been a single mum for almost 10 years and during that time I studied for a degree, my PGCE and held down a full time teaching job. I've seen my eldest daughter through her GCSE's and A Levels and off to University. But now her twin siblings are sitting their GCSE's and my father's Alzheimer's is deteriorating. I love my job, and I love the school which is an hour away by car but I'm struggling to keep up with everything. I changed to working 4 days a week but my workload hasn't reduced enough to make much difference, although my income has! Does anyone have any tips or advice on managing the workload when you are the only parent?
