I've recently created a profile for our family and have tried it out. We've only been doing it for a couple days, but it is working out nicely. The kids seem more motivated to do chores and they are helping me tweek it and customize some prizes that they want.
It really is handy to get the kids involved, having them check off what they've done online and give them a little control. That is a lot better than me standing over them nagging that the chores need to be done. I can picture us using this method from now on.
Here's the press release:
Chore Organizing Tool for Kids Teaches Project and Money Management As They Earn Rewards
Here is a revolutionary new way to teach your kids how to save, share, and spend wisely and responsibly.
My Job Chart is the free, easy to use, online chore chart and reward system that makes it easy for parents to assign chores and more motivating and meaningful for children to fulfill them.
The beautifully designed graphics and click to record actions is like a game that facilitates fun and learning in an engaging, hands-on, esteem-building way. Kids get to learn the ABCs of prosperity, including saving, sharing and spending.
My Job Chart gives parents the satisfaction of seeing their kids gain the foundation skills of a strong work ethic and financial responsibility.
My Job Chart was just endorsed by the Cox Communications System and has been integrated into its website. MyJobChart.com helps over 250,000 parents and children to track their school work, chores and practices.
My Job Chart was created and launched in 2009, by Gregg Murset, a Certified Financial Planner, from the Phoenix metro area.
MyJobChart.com has developed money management relationships with several major banks. With ING Direct Bank, MyJobChart.com members can now open a Kids Savings Account, with no fees, and no minimum balances. In addition, children, ages 9 and up, can have added real-world experience if they sign up for an ING Direct Money Debit Card through MyJobChart.com. The card allows children to learn lessons in spending and tracking money, but it also has a safety valve as it can be set up so when the child uses it, the parent gets a text message telling where and how much was spent.
My Job Chart can be used for free. For more information, visit www.MyJobChart.com
