NOTE: Accessing audio on iPhone & iPad
Due to their design Apple iOS devices cannot directly download mp3s and you may find they skip. Use the player next in MY DOWNLOADS to stream your track. See the AUDIO DOWNLOADS FAQ for more on download options.

If you are still having issues, please contact tech support via our contact page

AUDIO DOWNLOADS: Downloading my audio track to my device

Android Devices
Android users can simply download files directly from the internet or email and store them on their devices.

iPhones or iPads
Due to their design Apple iOS devices cannot directly download mp3s and you may find they skip. However, you can use the player next to your item in MY DOWNLOADS to stream the audio. To download for access offline you have a couple of choices:

1. You can download your track to your computer first and upload to your device using iTunes;
2. There are a number or 3rd party applications which allow you to download to your Apple device. This article offers 4 different methods of downloading tracks directly to your device (please note we do not endorse any of these methods or the software/apps involved, this is merely a suggestion) .

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND downloading your audio tracks to your computer first then transferring them to your phone.

EBOOKS: How can I view the ebook on my device?

In general iOS devices are capable of opening .EPUB files without any additional apps while Windows or Android devices may need an additional app in order to open the .EPUB ebook file. Where we have supplied .MOBI files, this is for Kindle devices.

Apple Computers, iPhones or iPads
The iBooks app comes as standard and your apple device should open your epub file automatically. Please ensure you are using Apple’s Safari browser for this to work.

Windows computers>Windows 8 or 10: one of many ebook readers is the free Bibliovore app. After installing you can click ‘Add a file’, browse to your downloaded epub file and open the book. Link to Bibliovore in the Microsoft Store.

All Windows versions: Another reader that is very simple to use is SumatraPDF.

Android Phones/Tablets
Android users can simply download the .epub file directly from the ‘downloads’ area of their account and store them on their devices. Most ebook reader apps, such as FBreader, will scan your device and add the file to your device automatically. Here is a link to a list of ebook readers for Android devices.


Kindles work best with .mobi format ebooks. Amazon has several ways for you to transfer your files to your Kindle. One easy method is using the free Send-to-Kindle email address they provide to send files to your registered Kindle devices, free Kindle reading applications, and your Kindle Library in the Amazon CloudMore details here.

VIDEO PLAYBACK: I'm having problems playing a video in 'My Videos'

Videos in the ‘My Videos’ area of your account use Vimeo player. This player works on all devices. There is an icon in the lower right to enlarge the video for full-screen playback.

Their player ‘switches between all available qualities to accommodate changes in the viewer’s Internet speed. When a video plays in lower than expected quality, it’s likely because the viewer’s Internet speed (bandwidth) cannot support higher quality playback.’

You can read more on Vimeo’s help page.
My order hasn't arrived. How can I check?

If you have any queries about orders please email Sales via our contact page or call our product manager Steve on 0429 465 083.

Can I cancel my order?

You may cancel your order if it is shippable and the order hasn’t been dispatched. If it is a downloadable product and has been downloaded, then you are unable to cancel your order as you have already received your product.

Please go to www.trybooking.com/lost-tickets and enter your email address. (Check for emails from TryBooking in your Inbox and Spam folders).

When will Maggie be speaking in my area this year?

Maggie’s upcoming events are displayed on the website at Current Events a month or more ahead of time, and you can also stay in touch with her movements by subscribing to her newsletter (on the home page) or ‘liking’ her Facebook page, where we advertise events organised by Maggie that are open to the public. Please note our newsletter subscribers and members of Maggie’s Calm Kids, Connected Parents App community get first-release access to tickets.

I want to attend an event that is listed as SOLD OUT. Can I go on a waiting list please?

Once an event has sold out, a waiting list will generally open on the ticketing page and we will email everyone on the waiting list should an extra ticket allocation become available.

How can I organise for Maggie to come and speak in my area?

Details of Maggie’s seminars and topics plus contact details for enquiries and bookings can be found on the Booking Maggie page. Please note that from 2019, Maggie is greatly reducing the number of bookings she takes as her schedule is already very full with the events her team organises, plus her other commitments.

Can I get a refund for my ticket?

If it is one of Maggie’s own events, please see our refund policy.

If the event is organised by a school or community organisation, then you will need to contact the event organiser directly to seek a refund.

Counselling & Parenting Advice

Please check the Parenting Help page to find resources, information and videos covering many common parenting issues – at your fingertips, 24/7.

Can I email Maggie a question seeking parenting advice?
While Maggie dearly wishes she could support every parent on the planet, she now receives so many emails and Facebook messages seeking one-on-one advice that it is not physically possible for Maggie or her team to reply to them. Also, we’re sure you can appreciate that it’s very difficult to offer meaningful support in a message, when every child and family situation is unique and often complex. If you do have a question, please take a look at our Parenting Help page to see if Maggie has written an article, recorded some audio or done a video blog that pertains to your issue.
Further, we have collated a very detailed list of useful support services for parents, children, teens and families across a range of issues (including services that offer counselling support).You can access that here.
Does Maggie do private counselling sessions?

No sorry. Maggie worked as a counsellor for well over a decade, however these days her goal is to support as many people as possible by providing support, resources and training through her books, online courses and seminars, and through her presentations and conferences. We have collated a very detailed list of useful support services for parents, children, teens and families across a range of issues (including services that offer counselling support).You can access that here.

Since Maggie no longer does one-on-one sessions, where can I find help?

Many of the organisations and resources listed on our Help & Support Services page and our Links page do wonderful work and are a good starting point. Some, such as Lifeline and Kids Help Line, offer 24-hour help over the phone and also have online chat support services. You may also wish to visit the Parenting Help page of this website, which lists resources that may be useful in dealing with particular concerns and issues.

NB: Urgent help for people at risk of harming themselves or others. Please do not hesitate to immediately get help by contacting: Lifeline on 13 11 14 (free from mobiles/local call cost from landline); • Kids Help Line (for people aged 5-25) on 1800 55 1800; Suicide Call Back service on 1300 65 94 67 (costs local call) or call the police or ambulance on 000 if someone’s life is in immediate danger.
