My Kids and ChoreMonster

ChoreMonster is a web and mobile Application that gives your kids a reason to do their chores.

 

You guys! I found something… It’s pretty awesome.

You know how parents are always saying that their kids are the best, the smartest, the most beautiful, the funniest, yadi yadi yada? Well. I’m totally that parent! So annoying, I know. Meh.

But mine really are the smartest, the funniest and most clever little beings, ever! Just like their Mama.

I have to tell you, though, there is one thing I don’t like about them. Those two beauties of mine do not care to clean after themselves. They must take after their father…

I honestly am so sick of finding socks in the oven (yes, they did that), teddy bears in the tub, Barbie and Ken in my car, Oreos in the sock drawers, and the list goes on for.ever. I signed up for the title of “Mom”, not Rosie Jetson.

In an attempt to teach my kids how to take care of their stuff and help out Mommy with cleaning, I decided to team up with the ChoreMonster squad and see if they could help a Motha out.

ChoreMonster is a web and mobile application that gives your kids a reason to do their chores, and a reason-or-two is what we needed.

Since Aleksandra is only 17-months old and way too young to understand, even though she makes the biggest mess, I decided that Ana and I were going to work on this clean-up thing together.

At first it looked like there wasn’t going to be any Monster that was going to be able to help us. Ana just plain refused to cooperate. However, about a week into using the application, she started to come around.

The ChoreMonster App was designed so that kids can earn points by completing chores that they can turn-in for real life rewards like going to the mall to play at the fun center, an hour at McDonald’s Playplace, or even a weekend trip to a water park.

When Ana realized that she missed out on a day at the mall because she didn’t do her chores, my girl was so fast to ask me to log her into ChoreMonster so that she could see what she had to do next to get her mall-time back. This is when I knew that we found something worthwhile.

Look at her – she’s scrubbing down the tub! In her shoes, but nevertheless, she is doing more than I asked her to do.
Aleksandra joined in – she thought it was bath time.

See her here? That’s when she decided to start logging into ChoreMonster to see what chores she needed to tackle.

What I really like about this Application is that it works for us. My little ones are realizing that chores are a part of everyday life and they are learning some responsibilities. Yes, she’s only 4-years old, and yes, taking the laundry down to the laundry room is not fun, per say, but it’s part of life and I only have two hands, people. And I work. From home. With two little children that like to scream. Besides, remember that these two little girls put socks in the OVEN and laughed about it…

Here’s the best part – my pals over at ChoreMonster are even more awesome because they are giving each one of my readers a FREE 1-month subscription to ChoreMonster! Just click here on ChoreMonster and put those children to work – I promise they will not only enjoy it, but they will ask to do more. You’ll see.

  1. Sounds like a great app. The trick is to use the app to help kids develop new habits through consistency. I used a similar app for around a month and my kids are now reminding me to tidy up and do other things that I used to struggle to get them to do everyday.

  2. What a fun app! I wonder how my teens would react to such a program? They have pretty much decided that life on the couch connected to their ipods is the life for them.

  3. This is one of the hardest things I have to tackle with my girl. She is old enough to know better but in her words, “I just don’t want to,mom.” And here I thought I was the “chore monster”! Haha!

    Thank you for sharing this with us! Your girls are absolutely adorable. I have a hard time believing that they make messes… (heehee)
