I know my mom always had trouble getting me to do chores. What parent didn’t have trouble or still has trouble. They say that there is an app for everything and that is so true. There is a new app called Choremonster and it claims it will make your kids beg to do chores. This sounds so awesome!
Here‘s how it works….
Parents program chores in the app and they give each chore point values. So, for cleaning their bedroom it could be worth 15 points and then one point for closing the cereal box up.
Parents then set up rewards that your kids can redeem after they earn a certain number of points. You can decide what the grand prize is. It could be as little as a video game or as big as a camping trip or sleep over with friends. Kids can download the app to see the chores and review their rewards.
The people behind Choremonster say that so far they’ve gotten a ton of positive feedback from parents. You can get the app free for iPhone.
Parents sign up at choremonster.com to get their kids registered.
If I had kids I would totally use this. I think it will work well for parents and getting their kids busy with chores. With technology these days I’m sure kids will love to use the iPhone or iPod Touch to look at their chores instead of their parents telling them.
