this is a tough one.

An 11 year old is too young to truly take charge of his own education. If he was that grown-up, he wouldn't need a mom. I wouldn't leave even a teenager alone all day; the temptation to get into trouble is just too much of a danger.

Can you go to school summers-only? distance learning? at night? on weekends? Does your husband or partner have the option of changing workdays? or telecommuting the days you are in school?

is the benefit of your going to grad school at this time so great, that it'd be worth possibly sending your child to school for a year or two, knowing you could pull him out again as soon as your schedule lets up? usually, the last year or so of grad school is just thesis work anyway.

Or, do you need to postpone this dream just a little while longer? presumably, if you're going to grad school you would be entering the workforce upon graduation. He'd still be at home. Would you be putting him in school then?

or, if you are really committed to keeping him at home, do you need to start your career goals after he's done high school?
