New Online Tool for Parents: ChoreMonster!

Choremonster

Okay parents, you are about to get really excited. I’m introducing you to a new tool called ChoreMonster. For many kids, chores are something that they try to avoid at all costs, but this web/mobile app makes chores fun by turning them into a game. Parents assign chores to their kids and set a number of points that will be earned when a specific chore is completed. They also create real-life rewards (ice cream, a new video game, a trip to the zoo, etc.) that can be redeemed by the children with the points that they’ve earned. Click through the jump to learn more!

Kids have access to their own dashboard that enables them to manage their chores and keep track of their points. As they complete chores, children will also collect interactive monsters that they can play with and learn from.

I recently gave it a go using my dog Roxie as my “child.” Goofy? Yes. But it shows you how the tool works. I really like it and think it’s perfect for parents. Take a peek!

Oh, and if you want to try ChoreMonster, visit their site and enter the invite code “Babble” in the upper right.
