The following are the most frequently asked questions regarding our Friends and Family Group Order. If you have specific questions please feel free to contact Accountable Kids.
What are the steps to placing a Friends and Family Group Order?
A: First browse through our web site so you
are familiar with the Accountable Kids program. Share Accountable Kids with
your friends and family and encourage everyone to visit the Accountable Kids
website. The Quick-Start DVD is now available on the home page for easy
viewing so don't forget to suggest watching this visual overview. Our
website is full of information that will help others learn about Accountable
Kids and make placing a group order fun and easy. Then just set a date
place your order so your friends and family know when the deadline is to get in

Accountable Kids Kits, must be shipped to one location, and use one form of
Q: Are the hostess rewards shared between all
the people who order?
A: We recommend the hostess rewards go to
the person who coordinates the order. Typically this is the person who places
the order, pays for the order, and arranges for items to be picked up. The
hostess rewards are our way of saying thank you to the person who shares her
time and resources with family and friends.
Q: Is it necessary to have twenty families
interested to place this order?
A: No. Most orders will come from a
group of only about 10 parents. You only need to have a total of 20 kits
or more in your order, not 20 people.
Q: Is there a minimum number of books or
other products required for this order?
A: No, you can order any number of books and
include any additional accessories.
Q: Does each family really need the book?
A: The book is very important to the success
of the program and can be purchased for only $10 when you place a Friends and
Family Group order. It is important to overemphasize the importance for each
family to have their own book. The book provides the step-by-step instructions
on how to use the Accountable Kids program. We have found that the success rate
of the Accountable Kids program is directly related to the reading and
following the four steps outlined in the book. Accountable Kids is more than a
chore chart. There are several components to the program that are best
understood through reading the book. The book contains valuable information
such as; a complete four step outline for implementing the Accountable Kids
program, information on how to customize the program for the developmental
stage of your child, a fast track to Accountable Kids, forms that can help kids
and parents plan out the program, and stories and examples of how to customize
the program. Most parents who do not purchase a book find that they use only
the "chore chart" components and do not benefit from the tools that teach life
skills, money management, positive discipline, and character development. You
will find the book to be a resource that is used over and over again as your
child grows and is ready for the next step of accountability.
Q: If a family does not purchase the book is
there another way to learn how to use the Accountable Kids program.
A: We want your friends and family to be
successful in using the Accountable Kids program, so if someone purchases a
kit, but decides not to purchase the book, we will send you a link to a website
where the Quick-Start DVD can be viewed and a PDF version of the book can be
printed out. Most parents agree that the $10 for the Accountable Kids
book is still less than the price of paper and ink used in printing out the
entire book. We highly recommend that you advise your Friends and Family
to purchase a book when placing their order.
Q: How can I view the Quick-Start video?
A: The Quick-Start video is now available
online for easy viewing on the Accountable Kids website. The book provides a
quick reference link that can be used to download and view the Accountable Kids
Q: What is the best way to present the Accountable
Kids program to a group?
A: Hosting a party can be a fun way to introduce
Accountable Kids to your friends and family. You can watch the 12 minute
Quick-Start DVD and demonstrate how the program works. If you let us know
the time and date of your event, we can be available to answer any questions
that might come up during your gathering. We can also send you
