Top Ten Apps To Help Teach Money And Time Management (best Android apps for kids)


Today I have some more apps for you and your kids to get organized. These apps focus around chores and allowances to motivate kids to use their time wisely and to set money saving goals. Contributing to the running of the household, setting goals, saving money, and time management are all essential  life skills that we want our kids to develop and the earlier we get them practicing these skills, the better. As an added bonus, I am fairly sure these apps could be used to cover some Grade 2 Common Core State Standards in relation to Time and Money.

CHORES AND REWARDS

iRewardChart

iRewardChart makes it easy to reward your children for good behavior and keep them motivated.
1. Type their name,
2. Select a few tasks from our list of suggestions, and
3. Reward their accomplishments with a single tap in the weekly chart
(* The sync-ing between devices recently launched on iOS, coming to Android soon)
When stars have been earned, your child can pick from the default list of suggested rewards, or you can setup your own custom rewards especially tailored for each of your children, like "$2 Pocket Money" or "One Hour Of TV". Children love to feel responsible, challenged and respected. But most children don't like being told what to do... iRewardChart also allows you to set up abstract goals like "Patience" and "Sharing With Others", so rewards teach the virtues you want your child to learn.

Reward My Chore

Add a child. Add some chores. Add some rewards. Give your child a thumbs up or thumbs down for their behavior. Bank your child's rewards and redeem them for activities/rewards of your choosing. Reward My Chore Android app is a free app that provides you with the tools to teach your children the value of good behavior.

RMC allows you to add as many children as you want, manage chores/activities that children should be completing, and manage the rewards that each child can cash in. RMC uses a very simple "thumbs up" "thumbs down" system. Each day your child has tasks that they must complete (homework, daily chore, brush teeth, be nice to siblings, whatever activity you define). As your child exhibits positive results they begin to accumulate points that can be banked into their rewards account and spent on any number of user-defined activities such as watching tv, date with mom/dad, skip a day of chores, or cash. There is no limit to the behaviors you may want to monitor and no limit to the types of rewards you would like to provide for your childrens' positive behavior

Allowance Tracker

Have trouble keeping track of your child's allowance? Stop relying on memory or pads of paper! Allowance Tracker allows you to set a fixed weekly allowance, which automatically updates the total. You can also set up and keep track of responsibilities for your child, such as doing the dishes or cleaning their room, with optional payouts. And for those one-off updates, like a check from grandma or a deduction for bad behavior, you can enter an ad-hoc update. A transaction history page lets you see a list of all incoming and outgoing changes.

When spending money, we've made it easy to help your kid visualize what they're spending. A bar shows them what percent of their savings they're spending to make a purchase, and a text display to show them how many days they've been saving to accumulate the money. Do you have more than one kid? No problem - the free version supports one child, but with an in-app purchase, you can add and track as many kids as you wish. Otherwise, this app is completely free, and there are no ads whatsoever.
