Great website for kids and parents

Great website for tracking chores/behaviors for kids. You can choose from preselected charts or create a custom chart. You can pick from a list of rewards or add your own. Kids can sign on and check off their chores and you can grade them on how well they did the chore. There is also games you can play and an "interactive" land for the kids to play in. My kids like it ok, but not as well as some of the other interactive worlds (such as Webkinz). Fun site though and definitely helps to motivate my kids to do their chores!

Kids say (3 ):

If your family is up for using all its bells and whistles, both you and your kids will really get into logging progress with chores online and earning points at The site provides loads of ideas and is extremely easy to use, which makes wanting to come back really inviting. The level of customization is probably the best feature: The process can be as simple or as detailed as you like. Want to choose from the site's list of chores? Want tasks to be daily, weekly, or just once? No problem. And, parents have the option to grade a completed task if they want kids to only earn a fraction of its worth (this is where quality versus quantity comes into play). is also well designed with loads of charming graphics and features kids will love -- from the games to the colorful virtual world. One thing: Using the tools on a daily basis is only practical if all family members are online everyday (you can go back one week if needed). So if you're low on time, you may want to skip the whole tracking, grading, and virtual world thing as the task chart feature is worthy in itself.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
