This Month's Point of Interest


This month's Point of Interest comes from one of this month's free lesson, the Intermediate Instant Lesson, 'Chore Monster'.

App rewards children for doing chores
Mon Jan 14 TORONTO (Reuters) - Forget bribery, intimidation and threats, a new app is designed to encourage children to do chores by turning the tasks into a game and giving them points when it is completed.
The app called ChoreMonster, available for iOS devices and on the web, aims to make household chores, such as setting the table, feeding the pets or unloading the dishwasher, fun.
"There are usually enough chores in a week to redeem some sort of reward," said Chris Bergman, the founder and CEO of Cincinnati, Ohio-based company ChoreMonster.
The rewards, which are provided by the parents, can range from privileges like sleepovers or a family outing, to video games or a cash allowance."It's exactly what you would expect kids would want and also more esoteric rewards," Bergman explained.
Parents assign chores through the app and include the completion dates along with the number of points the child will earn. They also set rewards, including the number needed to receive them. The child can then log in to their account and review the chores and rewards...
The app helped 21,000 children complete more than 300,000 chores during the eight months it was tested before being launched at the end of 2012, according to its makers.
Making the bed, picking up toys and books, cleaning the bedroom, feeding pets and dealing with dirty laundry were among the main chores. Top rewards included ice cream, an allowance, movie night, sleepovers and computer time.
"What I find really interesting is that a lot of times the reward is just empowering the child to make their own decision," said Bergman, adding it be could be selecting what to have for d inner.
The most obnoxious rewards he has seen have been l arge amounts of cash. "I get why parents use it, but the point system alone is enough to teach saving and spending. Cash becomes this middle ground and another step to whatever it is the child actually wants," Bergman explained.
