These short instructions will get you going with KidCash in no time.
Your children want to be trusted to make decisions and have control over their lives. You want to show them that a system of earning income will ultimately give them this, with you to guide them every step of the way.
Since you're looking to motivate them with the offer of more freedom, you want to look for opportunities where they are frustrated. This could be at a store when they ask you to buy them a toy, or when they want to play with your phone and you tell them no.
Whenever they say, "it's not fair!", it's a good time to ask them if they would like to start earning income and that will allow them to earn time or have some spending power if they save.
KidCash gives children a sense of empowerment, ownership, accomplishment and more. Now they're primed for a change in their routine and we can begin. They will soon know the joy of having more freedom day to day and will enjoy a richer experience as they gain independence.
