My Job Chart
So many parents worry about how to teach their kids the value of the dollar and want to prevent them from having a sense of entitlement. My Job Chart, an online chore chart, helps with both of these parenting fears by motivating kids to work while also learning to save, share and spend responsibly. It’s changing how parents teach financial fundamentals by making it fun for kids and easy for parents.
Through My Job Chart, parents can assign age-appropriate chores; when they are finished, parents or kids mark them as complete and earn points that can be used in several ways. The site allows parents to set up bank accounts to teach the importance of saving; share by donating to one of many charitable organizations; and access an integrated Amazon.com store to buy reward items. Parents can also create free rewards, such as a day at the park, a favorite meal or a family bike ride.
To make accessing the site even easier when on the go, My Job Chart just released new apps for Apple and Android. Mobile access to MyJobChart.com gives parents the freedom to teach their kids financial responsibility and personal accountability throughout the day. The free apps allow members to personalize chores, set up rewards and cash in points anytime, anywhere.
Kids using My Job Chart have completed more than 13.6 million jobs, earning 151 million points, which equals an earning power of $1.51 million. To download the app, search for My Job Chart on your mobile device or go to http://www.myjobchart.com/mobile_apps.
