Talked with QDawg today… wait… wrong dog… Talked with Dog Hannon on WALLS 102 this morning, about the challenges of being a parent… and if you have small children… You know, it’s not easy. Those “llama llama books” have been great with helping your 4 year old deal with his emotions…. But, it’s still a fight to get them going in the morning, do chores, take baths, even getting to bed at night.
In my house, with (soon to be) 5 year old boy/girl twins and a 6 year old son… things have been getting out of hand… attitudes, bedtime, crabbiness, whining, and slob like behavior. So, my wife established the “all so important” and mandated by Jo “the Supernanny” House Rules. And — for following the rules and doing the daily chores, the children would be rewarded with stars on a chart. However, a regular chart just wouldn’t do… Not when you have an Android phone… You can amp up the reward chart to the next level…. with iRewardChart.
iRewardChart – “Winner of “Best Parenting App” two years in a row (2010, 2011), via BestAppEver.com “
iRewardChart makes it easy to reward your children for good behavior and keep them motivated.
1. Type their name,
2. Select a few tasks from our list of suggestions, and
3. Reward their accomplishments with a single tap in the weekly chart
When stars have been earned, your child can pick from the default list of suggested rewards, or you can setup your own custom rewards especially tailored for each of your children, like “$2 Pocket Money” or “One Hour Of TV”.
Children love to feel responsible, challenged and respected. But most children don’t like being told what to do… iRewardChart also allows you to set up abstract goals like “Patience” and “Sharing With Others”, so rewards teach the virtues you want your child to learn.
We have a TON of toys between the three kids, so we set up a reward of 1 star for every toy they donate to Goodwill. Are your kids obsessed with IHOP? Mine are, so we made it a reward for 60 stars. Love this app! Bathing and getting ready in the morning is sooo much easier.
