About This Course

You love your kids more than anything in the world, but being a single parent is hard work. Whether you're single by choice or because of divorce, loss, or separation, this online parenting course will help you manage your life more effectively, from streamlining your daily routines and dealing with challenging behaviors at home to handling conflicts with your ex and making decisions about dating.  

You'll also learn how to build a support network, manage your finances, discipline your kids, and much, much more.  

This course is taught by a certified parent coach who specializes in supporting single moms and dads. Each lesson will include interactive enrichment activities as well as the opportunity to discuss the material with your instructor and your fellow classmates.

Throughout the course, you'll develop a clear sense of your strengths as a single parent. Upon completion, you'll be more consistent with your children. You'll know what discipline strategies work best for them and you'll be more confident that you're providing exactly what your children need.

Custodial parents, non-custodial parents, and expectant parents will all benefit from the concepts introduced in this interactive online parenting course for single moms and dads.

The class and instructor were both helpful and informative. I liked the format of the class and feel I learned more than I could have reading a book about single parenting because of the work (quizzes, assignments, final) and interactive environment of lessons, discussions and supplementary material. The instructor knows the topic well and also has a trusting and friendly way of interacting with her students. She provided suggestions, praise and encouragement. I would take another course of hers online if it was a topic if interest to me.
