Great idea! Feb 26, 2013

I'm sorry I will miss out on this valuable exchange. I'm going to be with my young son visiting his grandparents that week and won't be able to keep my usual early-bird hours in close quarters. I hope you all gain a lot from this, as it is certainly an important and under-addressed aspect of our trade.

Some might argue that 5 in the afternoon is a somewhat poorly chosen time for a seminar aimed at parents. I know I won't be sitting down to partake in an 60-minute seminar at that time of day - kid's home, there's dinner to be made, etc.! Maybe try scheduling during "school hours" next time?
I guess the silver lining is that it might be a convenient time for folks in the EST time zoneicon_smile.gif

Hello Signe,

Thank you very much for your feedback and interest in the training. We would try to announce the next webinar for parents earlier next time. In the meantime please note that the webinar will be recorded and all attendees will have unlimited access to the webinar video and handouts provided by the trainer. Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen

Hi Orsolya,
I will miss the training since I`m working out that day, anyway the topic for me it`s very interesting since I`m thinking in the experience on being mother and I want to learn how to balance my work with that. Fortunately, there is a video!
Regards!

Manuela Soares

Great to see so many of you here! Mar 1, 2013

I agree - we are indeed in a unique situation and there is not much advice out there to draw on, so it's always interesting to share ideas!
Please let me know if there are any issues or questions you would particularly like to hear about.
