Helps Your Kids:
Come play with us!
Use the app and we'll even help remind you to recognize and reward your Kids more!
Think of your Family like a business - what are the company ("family") values and what is expected of every employee (“family member”).
Create your Expectations. These are things around family values, behaviors, 'must-do' chores, hygiene and manners such as be kind, hands to yourself, no yelling, wash your hands with soap, keep clothes off the floor, turn lights off, make your bed etc.
These Expectations will be followed by every family member, at all times, yep, even you too parents!
Then, HIRE your employees for extra jobs around the house! Create jobs (chores) for your Kids to be hired for. They'll choose as many as they want and earn extra kash or fun experiences of your choosing.
If you have 'must-do' chores in your house you can make these part of your Expectations, Kids would get a warning X if not completed.
They'll compete to be your family's top performing Employee Of The Month (EOTM) and can be submitted to our monthly EOTM contest for extra prizes & recognition from us!
Kids are encouraged to follow Expectations if they want to be eligible for Kids Kash and Incentives. BUT! If your Kids are caught deviating from any of these Expectations they will receive a warning X. After receiving your customized number of X's (warnings), they are FIRED! Incentive bonuses are taken away and your set consequence(s) are enforced such as no tv, no device, no playing with friends.
Reward your Kids by celebrating them as your own employee of the month. Give a special reward to the winner for the entire month. Then submit your Kid to our HFK Employee Of The Month Contest!
Submit your overachiever for a chance to win extra prizes and to be featured on our site and social media.
Individually, staying NOT FIRED for the entire pay period is a big accomplishment. An incentive amount per Kid is held at the start of a new pay period. If your Kid avoids getting fired, then that amount is released and paid out on Pay Day!
As a team, staying NOT FIRED together is cause for celebration! Reward your Kids with a family outing or experience (e.g. Laser Tag, Home Movie Night, trip to the Zoo), as well as extra kash for each of them on Pay Day!
This incentive promotes teamwork and encourages the Kids to remind and support each other.
