Is It Any Good?

Our review:

The site could use a bit more information about how the overall process works; it can, for example, be a little confusing at first to determine how the money aspect works -- but registering to use the site is fairly easy. To help you get started, the site suggests chores and also offers some customization elements that let you add specific tasks and point values. My Job Chart has some nifty features. Grandparents and other family members can participate and match a percentage of what the child is saving. The site makes it generally easy for kids to keep track of what they need to do, and when they complete all assigned chores, thunderous applause rings out, offering some fun positive reinforcement.

The site doesn't fully automate all aspects of the allowance process; you'll receive a notification when it's time to save, spend, or donate some of your child's earnings and will need to help your child save money in a bank account or give some to charity. If kids plan on spending some of their cash, you can also choose products on Amazon as rewards, which some parents may not be comfortable with. The site does provide plenty of free reward suggestions, such as a bedtime story or TV time. And its philanthropic option provides a nice balance: Being able to donate a portion of their allowance money to a charity can help kids make giving back a habit early in life.

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.
