Getting people to clean is hard at any age. Getting children to clean is almost impossible. Like herding cats. With the right tools, it can be done however. ChoreMonster is a suite of apps that helps you get your little ones (or big ones) on track with helping out.
The reason this app helps is because it creates a score system for doing the work. Parents input the schedule of chores and how much they are worth, point wise. The kids can use these points to purchase things from the reward store. The parents get to decide what these will be too. As your children complete the chores, they can watch their points add up.
This app also teaches some basic elements of saving. Even if the rewards themselves aren’t monetary (they can be but they can just as easily be a special trip or extra time on the game system) children will have better results if they save up their points for bigger prizes. In addition, they’ll also get random monsters as they work to collect. It is a super cute app available for all devices for free.
