I totally agree with Chaotic Chica, you have to have a strong support system and know that everything you do is for your kids. Even if you don't have many to help you out (or even if you have to pay someone once in a while to help you out), it is all about how you handle it. Stay calm and know that where there is a will, there is a way. Sometimes, it helps to set a schedule for doing school work. For example, my son goes to bed no later than 8:00 and once he is in bed, I tend to focus on doing my school work and even doing extra work so I won't feel stressed out later. Or if you have a child who has nap times, you can try to do a little bit of studying during those times. Sometimes, I will study while my son is eating his snacks or playing. Or get up extra early before he wakes up to study a little bit. I hope some of these things help out. Every little bit helps.
