Definitely go to school to satisfy your desire to learn. Go back to school to bolster and improve your chances and ability to help young people. Don't go back to school to learn about social work in order to make good money. That's the situation here at least.

Like im's contribution, I don't know enough about your local conditions to advise on this point, but I'll tell you around here, social work (counseling, teaching, etc) is not a field that starts with lots of money and it doesn't go up very far or very fast from there.

Having said that, there are other more important areas to gain satisfaction from continuing one's education. You sound enthused, and I completely agree that your life experience will add insight and ability that younger people with less life experience can not match.

As for your family having to adapt to such a change, I see that as all to the good, though it may well be ... turbulent, it is inevitable. They won't suffer. They might cry but they won't suffer.


Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. -- Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and writer (121-180)

I don't want expect to generate a huge income from it, but if I can do better than a check out chick I'll be happy.

If I can get a job in youth work that would be great, but I will also be qualified for other types of things such as just normal counselling for normal every day situations people sometimes find themselves in. I can also look into other areas associated with corporate work in HR to do with profiling etc. This is an area I'm also interested in and will be able to incorporate into the degree if I find the initial subjects to be what I expect.
