KidCash uses traditional incentives and popular game mechanics to naturally encourage your young ones to want to make better choices, to become more independent and strive to be their best...all with less stress on your part. Here is a run down of what those incentives are and how you can use KidCash to achieve them with your young ones.
Studies show that people are twice as likely to be motivated by losses than gains. Violations are an easy way to deal with unwanted behavior that encourages calm communication.
Let them experience not having enough money to get something from time to time. The discomfort will help solidify the reasons that will help naturally motivate them to try harder to earn income.
Give a clear understanding of how tickets can be avoided to set them up for success and be lenient. If you can get them to fully understand what they should do the next time in order to avoid a ticket, consider letting this one pass. Not only will they learn kindness and generosity, but they will probably respect you more and won't want to disappoint.
Ask them to reiterate the reason for a rule should they break one. This not only makes them remember it better, but forces them to understand the associated events surrounding it.
