I have always been a huge supporter of children having household chores once they reach a certain age. My siblings and I always had chores, and I really think it taught us important skills that we have used as adults – managing our responsibilities and keeping a great work ethic.
Having chores also taught us to respect the value of money and to save for the things we really wanted. So there was never any question once our children got older about whether we’d want them to have chores too. Since the kids are more interested in tech calendars and reminders, we thought they’d prefer the ChorePal app over the typical chore chart.
The COUNTRY Financial® ChorePal app is available for iOS and Android devices and is a simple and effective tool for families to manage and reward daily household chores and allowance. You simply create a profile for each child, set the chores you want them to be responsible for and on which days and voila! You are ready to go! You can even decide whether you want your kids to earn points or dollars for each chore.
I am excited to use the COUNTRY Financial® ChorePal app with my kids as we plan for our next vacation. Each of us are setting a goal for how much spending money we want to take, and will be working together and supporting each other to reach that goal. One of the best ways to help your children learn to save is to set goals together and then celebrate every milestone along the way!
