"Online chore charts that allow parents to award points that children can redeem for virtual rewards."
Here's a blurb from my brain:
"My kids love online games and playing around on the internet. This is a great way to combine that devotion with getting things done around the house that need to be done. The points they earn can be "traded in" for a non-virtual, real life prize. My kids are working toward earning webkinz. I asked them what they wanted to earn, considered the price, and set the value for each chore accordingly. It is a little bit confusing to learn at first (for me, who was setting up the charts...the kids had no problem with their part), of course I didn't read any directions, just jumped right in, so that might have been the problem.
There is an online world (kind of like webkinz) where they can have a house, play games, and interact with others. It is what is working for us right now!"
