What each day should look like

be mindful about why you are doing this for your kids

The daily review is where you should spend the majority of your time with KidCash. This is going to take some minor discipline and effort on your part but if you think about the benefits, it's something you won't regret putting the energy into. Make a good attempt at doing this as long as you possibly can. You both will benefit from the close interactions and recaps that happen with this daily face-to-face time.

Talk to them during the day

teach your children by providing constant feedback

Whenever your child does something especially good or bad, tell them about it. If you can, give reasons and explain why that particular act is beneficial or harmful to them or others. Reasons give purpose and transparency, two powerful natural incentives.

Bonus Bounty & Violations

make conversations with your kids effective

If they do especially well, announce Bonuses and be excited. If they are behaving badly, give them plenty of warning and ways to avoid a ticket. Tell them why the behavior is harmful but if possible, let them choose to avoid or get the ticket. Tickets take a little time for them to truly understand the "loss" concept for be patient.

The dinner review

create a communication structure that is reliable and stable

Preferably after dinner, go through what went well, what didn't and then give them their allowance. Then deduct for the violations they've accrued. During this review, try to have them tell you what should have been done, why the rules exist and how they can try to improve for the next time. 

Let them spend it

connect the dots with tangible rewards

Come up with as frequent opportunities to spend as you can. There are a myriad of things you may have normally given them for free that you can now require payment for, such as smart tablet time, some chocolate syrup in their milk, etc.. Try to tie the things you tax to lessons about healthy limits. Try to keep the healthy things tax free.
