Maria works full time and has two young children. After careful consideration, she decides to return to school to earn a degree in Early Childhood Education. Though she is enrolled in an online university (which is more convenient than a traditional school setting), she is still overwhelmed because of the new demands on her time. She has been trying to balance staying late at work, taking care of her kids, and working on school assignments. Because she has so much to do, Maria has put off working on her final paper, thinking each night, “I’ll get to it tomorrow.” Finally, she confides in a friend that she is too tired to write the paper and she doesn't know what to do. Her friend tells her about a company that writes papers for students. Maria goes online to check it out because, at this point, she is willing to do whatever it takes to just get the course over with. She decides to pay to have her paper written just this once so that she can get through this busy and stressful time. Questions     
