“FamilyTeam”, a mobile application for managing household chores was featured on NewsWatch as part of its popular segment, AppWatch, that takes a look at the latest and coolest mobile applications and services on the iOS, Android, and Windows market. Andrew Tropeano, the host of AppWatch, conducted the app review and shared with viewers how it helps parents manage and reward children for completed household chores.
According to a recent study by Colorado State University, research shows that giving children chores has been linked to an increase in their responsibility, competence, self-reliance, and self-worth later in life. But making sure children accept and complete their chores is no easy task.
FamilyTeam is an mobile application that helps turn chores into a family activity and rewards children for completed tasks, turning the entire household into a team. The app is available for the iPad for $1.99.
To get started, download FamilyTeam from the app store and setup the schedule for each task and each child, which takes about 10 minutes in total. Parents give each completed task a reward, not necessarily a monetary one, and then explain the process to their children. At the end of the day or week, they can sit down with their children and see how many tasks are completed and how close to the reward they are. Each child has their own personal profile which shows them how many points they’ve received.
FamilyTeam is simple and easy to use, and it helps reinforce the concept of chores.
