Handipoints — reward your kids for doing chores

I have two kids, 7 and 4 years old. They are very lovely boy and girl, most of the time. ;-) However there are moments when I feel like I am not doing enough to have them grow into responsible adults. These are the moments when it is time for them to do their home chores. The issue comes every single time, especially with the oldest who went to her first grade last fall and is now bringing homework from school.

Handipoints is a brand new website aiming to help the parents like myself with taming their children. The idea is very simple and will work with 4-13 year olds. Kids do chores, record their progress online, get points, and after reaching certain amount can exchange the points for rewards, merchandise that parents buy from the website or things like “going to movies” and “staying up 1 hour past bedtime”.


I gave it a test run tonight — signing up was easy and the interface is quite intuitive. I am not sure my youngest will get it but my daughter is certainly ready for the experiment. She is already mastering Google and numerous online games, Handipoints will be a good starting point for her to learn the basics of online task management.

Do you have children? How do you teach them responsibility? What kind of rewards do you use?
