What parent testers had to say:
Trying to get my children to pitch in around the house has always been a chore in itself. Even when I have attached a monetary reward to it. I was very skeptical that My Job Chart would be able to accomplish the results I had been trying so hard to see. When I first set it up, I was impressed with the versatility. There is a large age gap between my children, and I liked being able to really customize the jobs for each child. I liked being able to specify the "point value" for jobs, and to select Morning of Evening jobs. I was happy to see that we could also choose non-monetary rewards. When we first started using My Job Chart, I started with a few basic chores scattered through the week. Week after week I was able to add more chores, adjust the point value and slowly build them up to the participation in chores that I was hoping to see. Each morning both of my children would run downstairs and ask to look at their list of jobs for the day. I could see that they were not only learning about the value of money, but also learning about time management. They knew what they jobs for the day were, and knew that at bedtime we would be checking them off together. Kudos to the creators of My Job Chart! A great tool to help children learn about money and time management. A great tool to help children learn the value of contributing. A great tool to help children learn that rewards are not always money-centered.
My Job Chart, based in Scottsdale, Arizona, is a free, easy to use, online and mobile job chart and reward system designed to teach, organize and motivate kids to earn, save, share and spend responsibly. Bringing together the latest technology and basic personal finance principles to help parents teach their children responsibility, accountability and how to manage money wisely, My Job Chart is a modern version of the old chore charts that hung on refrigerators and walls. Within minutes, parents can set up daily or weekly responsibilities and assign a reward value. Kids then can complete the task, notify parents the job is done, collect any reward coming and decide how much to save, spend or share.
My Job Chart has more than 610,000 members throughout the U.S. and Canada who have completed over 20 million jobs in just about three years.
