If it is one thing my 3 and 4 year old boys love is money. Granted, they don’t know much about actually spending it but they love adding coins and dollars to their piggy banks. My boys get very excited to give them a shake and feel the growth in savings. They haven’t yet spent any of the money in their piggy banks as I have visions of them using that money to buy a car or go to college. However, the idea that the money has value is definitely not lost on them. They do know money is used to buy the things they want
toys and need.
While they love to help me with certain tasks like baking, they aren’t as big of helpers when it comes to picking up their toys. They tend to stand around, picking up a toy or two, acting confused with me repeating directions over and over. It is quite frustrating. Perhaps using the idea of getting money for their piggy bank would be enticing?
I’m certain it doesn’t get any easier with age and I’m not the only one who recognizes this. My Job Chart is a customizable chore chart system online that is FREE and wants to help you teach your children responsibility and the value of money in a positive way!
By combining cutting-edge technology and opportunities for positive reinforcement, children are motivated by the unique, interactive program to do their chores and better grasp the value of the dollar. The system is one of the most effective tools in teaching children how to save, share with worthwhile charities and spend on things they need and want.
Looks cool, doesn’t it?
Suzy Orman also endorses My Job Chart as a way to teach children about money!
- Technology engages kids online, not a chart on the wall anymore
- Easy to set up as the parent.
- Incredibly simple for kids to use.
- You can set up each child’s account with chores that are specific to their age and abilities.
- Everything is customizable for each family. The specific chores, the prizes that will appeal to your children and even the amount of points that they will receive for each chore they complete.
- Teaches kids how to save, share and spend.
- Parents can receive an email or text when their child’s chores are completed or rewards are earned. They can then reply to this message by posting on the child’s “post-it note” to positively reinforce good behavior and work ethic. MJC also has a fully integrated message board system to encourage communication between family members
But most of all it is FUN!
