Teach kids money, focus, discipline and more with Kid Cash
Starting Up
Bonus Bounty
Setting the Expectation

explain the rules to your kids to keep them in control

This is where you give ample warning that if the unwanted behavior persists, they will be issued a ticket. Explain how many dollars will be deducted and why the unwanted behavior is a bad idea. Set them up for success. You never want a ticket to be a surprise.

Delivering the Summons

be clear when kids encounter consequences

The moment has come, they heard the warnings but decided to proceed towards the punishment. This is the point at which you declare to your child that they have just gotten a ticket.

The Trial

teach your children to communicate

This is the point where you let them try to talk their way out of the ticket. You ask them if they remember what they did and the reason that you don't want them to do it. You ask them what they think they should have done.

The Warning

teach your children forgiveness

Maybe it was a first time offense. Maybe they promise to do the right thing the next time. This is where you make the decision to let it slide this time, ticket free. It's an example of forgiving and kindness that they can experience emotionally.

The Choice

give your children leniency by making choices available

This is where you soften the blow of the ticket by asking them "which" currency they would like the deduction to take place. Note that the gift currency is untouchable when it comes to violations.

The HandCuffs

Create levels of consequences for your kids

You must have messed up real bad this time kiddo. This is when you issue a ticket and don't even give them a choice of which currency is being deducted. This should only be done with clear expectations laid out beforehand.

The Red Light Camera Ticket

remind your kids that the rules apply everywhere

This is when a child gets a ticket due to someone who's not the parent. Maybe you gave some teacher tickets to your child's instructor at school, or nana had an altercation that happened while babysitting that she just had to share. Beware, KidCash is everywhere!

the rules are everywhere with kid cash
The Land Mine

avoid negative surprises when teaching kids

This is when you drop a punishment on a child that was not expected. Maybe out of temporary anger, you took away all of their dollars in a feeble attempt to gain control over the situation. Maybe the ticket you issued was something that wasn't properly explained beforehand. These are land mines and one should avoid them as much as possible.

negative surprises should be avoided with kid cash
The Anchor

naturally motivate children by affecting their emotions

This is when you add extra inconveniences to tickets that occur for a set time period. These can be useful in the beginning, when you want to solidify the notion that tickets inconvenience their lives and should be avoided. An example could be not being able to use the device dollars for the rest of the day.
