HELP & SUPPORT

You Are Not Alone

Yes, doing, dialoging, and discovering is the most effective way for little brains and big brains alike to digest and retain information! But how can you allow creativity to reign free in your house every day and maintain your sanity? With KONOS help.

KONOS help includes ways for families to accomplish the manhy tasks that it takes to teach their children at home and be successful

Step.1

First, realize you are undertaking something much like our Christian walk. It is not something you finish and master. It is a constant battlefield of struggles that we win some of the time and lose other times. But it's through the failures that we define our character and grow stronger. So it is with teaching. And through the failures, your children (and you) will grow. You're not perfect, don't expect perfection!

Step.2

Second, get organized. Set yourself up for success. The KONOS Compass is a perfect beginning to each unit, each semester, and each year you plan. In the world of discovery/creativity, sometimes the lines can get fuzzy and the syllabus can adapt and change. Come back to center with a teacher's guide of encouragement and supportive strategies. And when your children's interests change and you want to quickly find KONOS activities, the KONOS Index is another fantastic resource to the three Original Volumes. The KONOS Index will allow you to quickly look through all KONOS subjects and find areas of interest.

Step.3

Third, get inspired! Creating the Balance DVD's (NOW Available digital download $100 OFF) are jam-packed with seven hours of how-to seminar where Jessica Hulcy shares her secrets to success. She covers how she cleans house, schedule days, plan units, integrate KONOS with the 3 R’s, teach all your children at different ages at the same time, how to think hands-on learning, care for toddlers, and still stay sane! Two of these seven hours of video show Jessica teaching her own children at home and in a small co-op group. This video won’t make you feel guilty. Instead, it will energize you! You will laugh, cry, and learn, all at the same time.

Also, the Dad's Video series helps fathers in… what it means to be the spiritual head, ways to protect and love their wives, effective discipline of children, the necessity of balancing providing monetarily for their family and spending time with their family.

With these powerful KONOS help tools, you can create an environment that will cultivate not only a love of learning, but a love of teaching. You are brave and noble for taking on the most vital task we have as parents, teaching our little ones God's truths at home. Set yourself up to have the most success in accomplishing it.
