KidCash is as flexible as you are. We work hard to create as much value for you as we can dream up. Here are some of the different ways you can implement the system to get your creative juices flowing including our favorites, "The Reverse Psychology", "The Auction" and more.
This is when you actively look for things you can call out as bonus worthy. You can either grab their hand and walk around the house and notice if they've kept tidy, or you can go through their homework and reward them for any extra effort you can find.
This is when you get them excited about the goals before they achieve them. Tell them what will get them the Bonus Bounty and the reasons you are asking them to try extra hard to get there.
Tip: Reward effort and not the outcome.
This is when you put a Bonus Bounty mailbox for your child (maybe on their bedroom door or in the kitchen). They can check it daily for fun ways to earn extra dollars when the mail comes. If they can't read, maybe use pictures to convey the tasks.
This is when your child aces their goal on the first try. It's a big deal Make a huge deal about it!
This is when you slowly stop rewarding a task that is no longer difficult. Bonus Bounty should always be shifted to fresh tasks.
This is when you randomly reward positive behavior in a way that creates an element of surprise and delight.
This is when a good act is not directly witnessed. It could be the sibling, the babysitter, or teacher told you of something especially noteworthy...or maybe you were just hiding around the corner watching and they didn't know you were there.
