LET ME EXPLAIN
Why Everyone
Needs This...
Parents
Below are some examples of the videos you will have access to in your child's online account:
Parents
  • Do you ever feel overwhelmed with all that you want to teach your children?
  • Do you ever feel like there just isn't enough time in the day to do all that you want to do with your children as you help them to become better human beings?
What If Teaching Could Be Easy...
  • What if: you could teach your children skills like: kindness, sharing, table manners, responsibility, compassion, and much more, while helping your children to live with confidence and honor without correcting them?
  • What if: you could do all this, while playing & having tender conversation with your children, just a few minutes per day?
  • What if: you could find a way to bring more joy and unity into your home?
"Manners Make Me Feel More Happy"
THIS BOX WILL ARRIVE EACH MONTH WITH NEW, FUN LEARNING MATERIALS FOR YOUR CHILD!
What Skills are the children taught?
Each month, the children will focus on a particular skill that falls in the categories of: manners, character development or life skills. There are currently 15 boxes completed and we hope to develop more.
Each month the box focuses on one skill that goes along with the storybook for that month. The lessons include:
What is Etiquette
Etiquette is Helping Those Around Us to Feel Valued and Comfortable. Let's see why are actions are so important.
Saying "Hello"
When we say "Hello" and introduce ourselves, we are sending a message to others that we want to know them and we want to be their friend.
Kindness
Being kind to others is one of the best ways to find happiness for ourselves. Let's learn how.
Sharing
We can share many things like our possessions, our time, our love and our friendship.
Magic Words
These special words are not really magic, but using them sure feels like it sometimes.
Cleaning Up
Why is it polite to clean up our own messes and how do we show respect to our parents by keeping our rooms clean and our possessions protected?
Being a Guest
When we are a polite guest, we are invited back! Let's make sure we know what being a polite guest means.
Sincere Apologies
Giving sincere apologies shows that we truly care that we have hurt someone. Let's learn how to give a sincere apology.
Table Manners
Let's learn many table manners skills, so we can show those we dine with that we value them and their experience at the table.
Good Hygiene
Yes, having good hygiene (smelling good from top to bottom), is polite and shows those around us that we value their comfort.
The "No" Word
We must always remember to politely and graciously accept the word, "No."
A Clean Mouth is a Cherished Gift
Our mouths must never be rude, ugly, gross, or speak of unkind things. Let's learn how to keep our mouths clean!
Giving and Receiving Gifts
We must learn how to show sincere gratitude when others take the time to sacrifice in order to give us a gift.

FAQS

FUNdamentals4Kids is a monthly subscription. Each month, children receive a box that has various hands on activities and access to online activities that teach manners, character development and life skills.

FUNdamentals4Kids is determined to equip children with the necessary tools they need to be successful both personally and professionally. Through hands-on activities and online activities, we strive to be a trusted partner by parents in helping them to teach their children fundamental skills that instill strong moral values, impeccable integrity, sincere manners and an overall commitment to excellence.

FUNdamentals4Kids is ideal for children ages 4-9 years of age, but often, it really depends on maturity. We have children 3 years olds and 12 year olds who not only enjoy it, but learn so much that they didn’t know before.

FUNdamentals4Kids is meant to be a family affair. Parents, what we know is that our children learn so much through discussion (not lecture, but discussion). Many of our hands-on-products are designed to create kind discussion between parent and child like our flashcards, board game and story-time. What we can tell you is this…if you want your child to learn the most from this program, it requires parental involvement. It’s up to you how much time you spend on the activities, but there is enough activities with this program, that you will have 10-20 minutes of material 5 days a week for each of the four weeks of the month if you want that.

Yes! If you are currently paying monthly, you can switch to a 6 month or 12 month subscription at any time to save, as long as you have at least 6 months of boxes left to enjoy. Simply login into “Manage My Account” and click on “Change my Plan”.

Yes. There are refunds when you purchase your boxes by the month. SHIPPING IS NON-REFUNDABLE. You can “Return to Sender” when you receive a new months box and when we receive the box with everything in its original condition, we will then refund you. You must go click on “Manage My Account” and then click on “Change My Plan” in order to cancel your subscription.

You may cancel your subscription but you will still receive the remaining boxes of your prepaid subscription. When all of your boxes of your prepaid subscription have been shipped, then your account is canceled.

Our boxes have enough materials for 4 children to participate, with the exception of the first box which comes with (1) Success Booklet. Additional booklets can be added at checkout when you sign up.

If you order between the 1st and 14th of the month, your order will be shipped on the 15th of the month. If you order between the 15-end of the month, your order will be shipped during the first week of the following month.

Bringing My Family Together

This program is bringing my family together in more ways than one. Until we started doing this program, I didn’t realize that we weren’t spending enough quality family time together. Now, we have such a fun time, discussing the stories or flash cards, playing the board game, taking the challenges and singing the songs. Truly, my family is becoming more unified. I can’t believe the change in my home!

I can see a huge difference

I can see a huge difference in teaching manners to my children outside of correcting them. They love the lessons and think the activities are so fun. I don’t think they even realize how much they are learning.

How do we define manners?
Manners (or etiquette) is helping those around us to feel valued and comfortable.
Why do manners matter to us and why should they matter to you?
Manners matter because our happiness and success in life is heavily influenced by the health of our relationships both personally and professionally. If our children do not have the skills to develop healthy, compassionate, selfless, kind relationships that are built on integrity and mutual respect, then our children will struggle to find true peace and happiness.
