Terms and Conditions – Find Another Family App

Personal Conduct: By signing this agreement you agree to act professionally, respectfully and politely when dealing with others on this App. 

Privacy Concerns: When you text, to begin with, use only your first name, because this keeps you confidential. Some beginning questions are provided for you but there are many more you can ask before making a phone call or meeting up. Gradually get to know a new family by next having a phone call, then meet up in a public place. You can do this all without revealing your last name or where you live. You agree by signing this agreement that you are 100% responsible for who you chose to communicate with and any consequences to yourself and your child or children during or after you meet them or share a home-school experience with them. 

I agree not to use your registration information for other purposes other than issues that directly affect this website. You can delete or hide your profile at any time, especially when you find another family or families to work with. If you are harassed by someone then you can delete them on the App. 

A copy is kept of your agreement to these Terms and Conditions. If you receive an updated Terms and Conditions email, then we assume you agree to it because you did not delete your profile. 

Contacting Other Families – Criteria to look for:
Look for a family with similar ages to your children, the same language, a similar outlook on life and people you can get along with.  If something does not feel right, ask more questions or say no. Only choose people you feel are safe with your children. You are 100% responsible for the safety of your child. If you can’t take on this responsibility then please don’t use this site or participate in this project. We do not make any attempt to interview or screen for people with a criminal record or potentially harmful people or situations that can develop. Start with texting on the App, then phone, then meet them in a public place. Stay with your children at all times when at the home school. Take all the precautions you would normally take when visiting another family for the first time. For example type of dog at this new home, other pets, allergens, if the house has been childproofed etc. Have all the families involved make the environment as safe as possible, set limits and boundaries where needed. Do an adult walk through before any children arrive. Check the space for any hazards depending on the age of the children. If a child or children you team up with are wild, aggressive or unable to follow rules then don’t team up with that family. If a child does not have basic empathy, or self control then they are perhaps not ready for this program. You are 100% in control of this evaluation and decisions on who to team up with. There is no obligation, you can change your mind at any time and find a family that does work for you or delete yourself from this website.  

Covid Epidemic: Every area of the world is different in terms of how many cases there are of Covid and how likely someone is going to be infected. Each individual is also susceptible according to their overall health. Each family is in a unique situation. For this reason each family needs to make their own evaluation as to how much risk they are willing to take in terms of meeting up with others. But generally one can say that meeting up with the same family every day is less of a risk than your child meeting up at school with many more children, but again this is your call depending on the policies of your local public school. Things change over time, this means that your decisions need to also be reevaluated to fit what is best for your family. Again this is 100% your responsibility. Every decision has some benefit and some risk. Take the precautions that are recommended by your state or country. Make an agreement with the other family or families regarding standards for this epidemic and what to do if someone gets sick. Again you agree to take all the responsibilities for these necessary measures and risks. 

Vaccinations: Some families choose to take all vaccinations, some none or only some. This may affect your decision on who to team up with or when to keep your child home if there was say an outbreak of whooping cough in your area. Again these decisions are all 100% your choice and there is no obligation to team up for any activity (meeting up with another family) if you feel it is not safe because of a threat of any illness. 

Accidents and Injuries: In order to lessen accidents you agree to stay in eye contact with your children at all times. Only gradually trust others. You may want to get a certified background check for yourself from a local authority. You can also ask others if they have done this. Some families keep guns in their home. Ask them if the guns are locked up and how securely they are kept. Gardens are necessary places for play but check all trees for dead branches that can fall, other hazards you see as dangerous, and check locks on gates, etc. You agree to take all necessary precautions for these issues and precautions for swimming pools etc. If you see anything that is potentially dangerous in a house in a garden then best to fix it right away or make other arrangements. Small children often pull on cords, this can lead to heavy things falling on them. Research how to childproof a home and garden. Here is one source but there are many:

If English is not your main language then read similar articles in your own language. If something above does not make sense or you feel you are not willing to take all the precautions a reasonable person would take, and all the responsibility for you and your family, then don’t sign this agreement. 

Success: This App and website can not guarantee any success in finding a suitable family to work with as co-educators. As more people become aware of this website there is more chance someone will post a profile that will work for your family. You can also look for another family on social media, your local church or community center.  

Conduct: If your conduct is seen as disruptive, or not fitting the overall standards of this site or the App, you agree we can delete your profile without due process. Please do not take rejection from another family personally or make an issue about it. Stay modest and civil. Most likely if you keep searching you will find a better match. Both families need to want to work together. Agree to disagree and then move on without any unkind words. 

A copy is kept of your agreement to these Terms and Conditions. If you receive an updated Terms and Conditions email, then we assume you agree to it because you did not delete your profile. 

By signing this agreement you are taking all the responsibility for all the items above and all the ones that are too numerous to mention (the weather, car accident risk, acts of God etc) because everything is your choice and again you agree to take full responsibility to assess the benefits and risks of all these choices on a daily basis to keep your family safe.

I have read the above paragraphs and agree to all the terms and conditions listed above:  ______

Terms and Conditions to Use for The Curriculum

The Curriculum Content on this site is based on the idea that all aspects of development are equally important. There is no testing provided for intellectual or emotional development or an expectation that this will happen with your child on a set schedule. This is the most common situation: there will be areas of learning and development that seem effortless for your child and then one or two areas where they struggle. It is more likely that they will be able to overcome the areas of struggle if there are activities every day that emphasize an integrated approach to learning because the areas of strength can be used to help the areas where there is less of an aptitude. Also the area of struggle will be challenged every day to improve. Although this gives your child the opportunity to learn in all these areas there is no guarantee this will happen and you have to take 100% responsibility for this. 

This curriculum is not based in any one culture or religion, because it can work with any. I encourage you and it is better if you add myths, stories, legends, games, art techniques, music, songs, etc that are from your own heritage, language, culture and religion. The process of child development as a whole person is the goal and the steps I show, although seemingly simple, are universal no matter what culture or religion you or your children are from. These steps and processes are not dependent on a specific content. 

Results Expected: The techniques I suggest, produce gradual results over months or variable results depending on your child. There is no guarantee on the results expected because some children are born with or acquire severe disabilities that can prevent almost any development. If there is one area where your child can develop this program has a high probability of finding it and making it stronger, because it challenges all aspects of development toward a positive outcome. 

If you try out this curriculum and for any reason it is not working for you or your family then search out other home-schooling programs, or return to the public or private school system. If you find a program or lesson that works better or you find a very helpful resource then please share it on the Comments, Questions and Answers Page. 

Only choose to use products, and materials etc that are safe for the age of your child. Every product, toy, sport, tool, house, garden environment, other family member other than your own, other child, and every activity has some risk. By signing this agreement you take 100% responsibility for these risks. I encourage you to minimize these risks by taking the steps a reasonable person would take to prevent an accident, trauma or injury. 

Age Requirement: If you have a child or are responsible for a child, there is no restriction on age requirement to use this curriculum. 

Copyright: None of the ideas or materials in this curriculum are original. Having said that the website as a whole and its parts are protected by Copyright, which means you can not copy it or duplicate it. Each technique and idea is meant to be used at your discretion, deleted, added to or changed as best you see fit. 

By signing this agreement you are taking all the responsibility for all the items above and all the ones that are too numerous to mention (the weather, car accident risk, food poisoning, acts of God etc) because everything is your choice and again you agree to take full responsibility to assess the benefits and risks of all these choices on a daily basis to keep your family safe.

Updates to Terms and Conditions: A copy is kept of your agreement to these Terms and Conditions. If you receive an updated Terms and Conditions email, then we assume you agree to them because you did not delete your profile.
