Cincinnati-based startup ChoreMonster knows that getting a child to clean up, wash dishes or do any other chore for that matter is a chore on-to-itself. The new free and clever little app aims to make tedious tasks fun and rewarding for kids and less of a hassle to deal with for parents.
Parents quickly and easily create scheduled chores with point values for their children, and once it gets completed they get points. Once the kids get enough points they can “purchase” items such as hugs, money or possibly a camping trip with the points they collect. Kids can review their chores on their own app/site, checkout their rewards and keep track of their points. During all of this kids also earn random monsters for added fun and stickiness. Parents hopefully won’t have to yell at their kids to do something, while kids won’t have to hear from parents what they need to get done.
