Transcript BALANCING ACT By Darlene Campos The rise in popularity of MTV's reality show "Teen Mom" has brought to surface the issue of young parents and their struggle to balance school, work and family life. The show hits close to home for some UH students, as they learn to juggle class work while raising children. Deyadira Treviho and Argelia Martinez are among UH's student parents. Both women focus on their studies but still find some time for their children. "Time is hectic and I'm sleep deprived and half-starved due to a crazy schedule." Treviho, a Spanish and creative writing major, said. She said by the time she puts her son to bed, it is usually past 8 p.m. That is when she has time to study or do her work. Martinez, who is majoring in public relations and Spanish, said the hardest part is finding time to spend with her children in between school and work. But she said she also makes the necessary sacrifices to spend time with her children. "I have to take some Saturday classes so I can still work full time," Martinez said. "I try my best not to touch my books until after I've read a story to them and put them to bed. Our dinner time is sacred, so I try not to let school come in between our dinner time. Most times I rather sacrifice sleep time than my time with them. "However, when I really have to, I give them something to do. My little one loves to pretend she is doing homework like mommy and for the oldest one, we set a time after to talk about his book. He loves feeling like he's teaching me something." Martinez said her family is her main base of support as she completes her college career at UH and would find it difficult to go at this with out their help. "I am a single mother. My parents retired and live in Mexico," she said. "My children are my biggest and only support. They pick up after themselves, they are very independent and understand that mommy needs to finish school to provide a better future for them and spend more time as a family. "They have chores every day so they are used to helping out. It was very hard for me to break the traditional Mexican mommy mold and stop cooking complicated meals at night, so I try to fix healthy and quick recipes. My daughter sets the table, and my son washes dishes after." UH has resources for student parents, including the Women's Resource Center at the University Center and a daycare center. News [71]
