Experience:

Jennifer has been an advocate for single parents since 2004, when she began teaching parenting classes through a program called "PEACH" in Hunterdon County, NJ. In that capacity, Jennifer had the opportunity to support many single moms and dads who were referred to her classes through the family court system.

Since then, Jennifer has been honored to support single moms and dads though this site, through her one-on-one parent coaching practice, and by helping other organizations to develop and facilitate ongoing parent education programs.

Jennifer also teaches Managing Life as a Single Parent, an online parenting class for single moms and dads, through Cengage Learning and ed2go.com. The six-week course includes 12 interactive lessons, and new sessions begin monthly.

Education:

Jennifer earned her parent coach certification through The Parent Coaching Institute, which offers a graduate level coach training program in conjunction with Seattle Pacific University's Graduate School of Education.

By Jennifer Wolf:

"So many of the single moms and dads I have worked with feel completely alone, and unfortunately, being a single parent is a role that our culture just does not do enough to honor and uphold.

"My goal as the Guide to Single Parents here at About.com is to provide relevant information for our readers, while also creating a community our readers can return to again and again for the ongoing support and encouragement they need."

Personal:
Jennifer is also the mother of two children, ages 15 and 11. When she is not writing or working with clients, you can find Jennifer hanging out with her kids or (less frequently) curled up with a good book.
