What each day should look like

be mindful about why you are doing this for your kids

The daily review is where you'll want to invest most of your time with KidCash. While it may require a bit of discipline and effort, think about the rewards it brings. It's an investment you won't regret making. Try to maintain this routine for as long as you can. Both you and your kids will benefit from these meaningful interactions and daily recaps during your face-to-face time.

Talk to them during the day

teach your children by providing constant feedback

Whenever your child does something particularly commendable or not-so-great, take the time to talk to them about it. If possible, provide reasons and explain why that specific action is either beneficial or harmful to them and others. Giving them reasons adds purpose and transparency to their actions, which are powerful natural motivators.

Bonus Bounty & Violations

make conversations with your kids effective

When they do exceptionally well, celebrate their achievements with enthusiasm and announce Bonuses. If they are displaying challenging behavior, provide plenty of warnings and suggest ways to avoid receiving a ticket. Explain why the behavior can be harmful, and if possible, let them make the choice to either avoid or receive a ticket. It might take some time for them to fully grasp the concept of "loss," so be patient and give them time to understand it.

The dinner review

create a communication structure that is reliable and stable

Ideally, after dinner, discuss what went well and what didn't throughout the day, and then provide them with their allowance. In the future, you can schedule allowance sessions once a week or less frequently. Deduct any penalties for any violations they've accrued. During this review, encourage them to share their thoughts on what could have been done differently, why the rules exist, and how they can work towards improvement next time. These moments are valuable for their learning and growth.

Let them spend it

connect the dots with tangible rewards

Look for as many chances to let them spend as possible. You can transform many things you used to give them for free into opportunities for them to spend their KidCash, like smart tablet time or adding chocolate syrup to their milk, for example. Whenever possible, link these expenditures to lessons about healthy limits. Keep the healthy choices tax-free to encourage those positive behaviors.
