  1. Logistically, I think these fall after bedtime, but are they really offered on EST or is it EDT? We’re CDT right now, so these would be an hour earlier for us if it’s EDT, but if you’re offering them on EST, I think it falls smack in the middle of the bedtime shuffle.

  2. Not entirely sure how the webinar works, but any chance you can rebroadcast (or somehow make available for later listening) the webinars on new sibs at a later time for us West Coast WOHMs?

  3. I was just going to echo c and ask if there was a re-broadcast option for Westcoast WOHMs. Would totally sign up for the “Clingy Toddler” class but anything before 7:30 PST wouldn’t work.

  4. Oh, how I wish you had decided to offer these classes about 10 weeks ago! I had a new baby 8 weeks ago and have a 22 month old! Agh!

  5. I’m so in for these webinars about siblings! I would love for my hubby to watch them too, but the Pumpkin still takes forever to go to sleep (URG! Maybe you can make that another webinar?), so I can’t be sure that he can be available at 9:00.So basically, like the other comments, I’m asking about re-broadcast options or a downloadable option or something?

  6. I just signed up for the sibling classes, but echoing other comments that for us West Coasters, it would be great if there was a re-broadcast or downloadable option.

  7. We just found out I’m pregnant again, and would be really interested in something like this in a few months (when we’re sure this pregancy is going to stick and closer to freaking out about juggling new baby & pre-schooler).Are you thinking of doing this every couple months? Or making it downloadable for later?

  8. As a long time reader, I’m starting to think you’ve forgotten your entire basis for this site being that you’re not a parenting expert. This material has all been posted in the archives, and while it’s a great idea, it seems like playing on and taking advantage of the fears many people have when becoming parents for the second time. You provide such thoughtful information, just don’t exploit people.

  9. I have to disagree with LD. My guess is that Moxie will approach this as she does with her site–that she’s not an expert but does have good ideas; that she has experience of her own in these areas and has talked with others to gather many data points which she does a great job of sharing; and that she does not believe there is one right answer for every child/parent/family. In addition, I know that Moxie reads even more books and information than I do about child development, so she might not be an expert but often knows different perspectives that the “experts” have. And there are plenty of books (like the No Cry books) written by people without any degree or MD pertaining to children.I would rather hear what she has to say about a topic I’m interested in than what a hospital class or some other standard advice guru says. I’m pretty sure anyone who knows her and her site will sign up for the Webinars knowing all that about her and not feeling like she is taking advantage of any fears people may have. At least my eyes are open, and I’m still very interested.

  10. I second CaraMama in response to LD but in a different way: people learn information in all sorts of different ways. I think Moxie exploring new ways to share what she has learned is a great idea for those of us who learn better by listening rather than reading. I have absolutely no problem with Moxie trying to earn some money for the valuable knowledge she possesses. Writers of all kind teach writing classes; I don’t see how this is that different.

  13. I just wanted to chime in asking for a rebroadcast option of the toddler class for people in Europe. Although I would love to sign up, there’s only one very small person in this world for whom I’ll willingly stay up until 3 in the morning (and even then only under duress.)

  14. would love a download option for west coasters! thanks so much!and to the poster who said EDT vs EST… come on. She means eastern time – whatever time it is in NY. Adjust accordingly.

  15. Too funny that the “Baby’s Here–What Do We Do With a Sibling?” is happening on the 13th, given that I’m due on the 12th! Hopefully this will actually be true for my family, and I will in recovery by then… Gonna have to miss this one, though. Maybe a rebroadcast that I can access when I regain consciousness.

  16. Also wondering if there will be a way for those of us in the West to access the webinar a bit later? I’ve signed up for the first one (baby due on the 20th! Have a 3 yo already! eep!), but it’s right at bedtime and my husband is on call that night so I’m on single-parent duty! Maybe I should get my daughter to watch it with me?!

  17. Adding in another vote for an option to download or re-broadcast these webinars. I’m interested but live in London, UK – so like the Parisians, 9ET is the wee hours of the morning for me. I like to think I’ll be asleep then!

  18. Yeah I’m echoing the download/re-broadcast thing for people in other countries, or maybe a text version or something? I’ve got 7 weeks to go with No 2 and No 1 will be 2 in June, so these would be fantastic for me too! πŸ™‚

  19. Well good luck to Moxie, that’s all I can say. I don’t see anything wrong in broadening out the way she has (and making a buck out of it at the same time). I think we are all old enough to decide for ourselves whether we want to pay for this service. We all know that Moxie isn’t an expert per se, so no one is being fooled here. And personally I really do not think that Moxie is playing on anyone’s fears either. I just hope that this site doesn’t change direction and become one of those places where you have to pay for everything.

  20. Signing up for clingy toddler for sure. I’m dealing okay with the All Mommy All The Time but hopefully there’s some info on how to make the other family members on the other end not feel so bad about the rejection – ’cause it is brutal right now. Even if it’s just ten different ways to say this too shall pass.I fully support the commercialization of Ask Moxie. I don’t think the website should be a subscription service because I think the foot traffic makes it what it is but for every bit of advice Moxie may charge for – she’s given back ten fold. And that’s more than Tom and his buy one give one $90 vegan red wrap boots can say.

  21. DANG! I really wanted to take the 20-24 month old black hole one, but have a conflict.I’m thinking LD is confused or perhaps underestimating AskMoxie readers. Maybe I missed something but I don’t think the tagline for any of these classes was TAKE THIS WEBINAR OR YOU WILL FAIL YOUR CHILDREN AND HAVE SEVEN YEARS BAD LUCK.
    Did I miss something?

  22. I personally like the more broad ranges of prices, because I could much more easily afford $12 than $45. I realize the longer classes where you get something every day take more work and that is why they cost more, but that is still out of a lot of people’s price range.

  23. i SOOOOO Desperately want to go to the siblings webinars but thats right smack dab in the middle of dinner and with a hungry 2yr old running about and husband at work i don’t think i could have the time or concentration to sit for the whole thing..PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE rebroadcast/download/transcript these!!!
