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 make them agree to get started. The easiest way is to use opportunities where they think something isn't fair to start a conversation of allowing them to make decisions. It could be in the toy store, where they are asking for a toy. When the answer is no, and they are upset, now is the perfect time to ask if they'd like to start earning income.
This is when you introduce the system one piece at a time, until you've built up your web of positive reinforcement, opportunities, rules and rewards.
This is when you explain the entire system to your children and just let them wing it until they get it.
This is when you stock your house with an irresistible treat to get them started with the habit of exchanging a dollar for something of value. It could be a bag of Hershey's kisses, and you've only started with the one candy dollar a night. You just ask, "who wants a Hershey's kiss? Oh you do? Do you have a candy dollar?"
This is when you treat the dollars like a ticket at an amusement park. One will get them the ability to do something, rather than thinking of the dollar amount the privilege would buy.
This is when you create a value system based on real world economics and your personal budget.
