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.
Giving children a sense of control over their experience gives them a feeling that they want to protect, improve and cultivate it.
One way could be to let them pick out a special wallet where they can keep their money. You can print and make some from our free downloads section here.
Show them how much they have saved, what is in their bank books and give examples of what it could get them in the real world. Tell them how the more income they have can increase the control that they have over their own world.
Cite specific examples of how they have improved in certain areas, how their freedom and ability to control their environment has increased over time. Let them know that they are on a path towards something greater.
