21st Centry Allowance

26 06 2007

I remember all the way back to the 20th century, I got my allowance in cold hard cash…..for one week. I never really got an allowance but learned a lot about elbow grease. Both my parents were and are hard workers so I have yet to decided how and if and when my young children will receive allowance, but if I was giving them allowance now I would check out this application I came across on Techcrunch.


I think as children’s pastors and children’s workers it is our job to help parents not try to replace parents. So for all you parents out there check it out. For all you children’s workers check it out so you can help give tools to your parents to better do their job, because as I am finding out. More kids = less time for anything.

allocation of household chores. PAYjr offers an allowance and chore system that allows parents to assign household chores online, designate a money value for those chores, and provide a financial reward when chores are successfully completed. PAYjr supports instant messaging, e-mail and text messaging to notify children when their parents assign new chores or when money has been deposited into their PAYjr account or other savings account. Likewise PAYjr notifies parents when a chore has been completed, building up a record of chores over time.

PAYjr is sort of a CRM billing system for the family. The use of online tracking applied to kid’s chores is a good idea, adding support for TXT and IM makes it better again. Parents with kids looking for a different way of managing the allocation of chores will like PAYjr.

In our home, the kids don’t get paid for contributing to the running of the household. Example: folding their laundry, emtying the dishwasher, making beds. If they want money, they’ll ask and we’ll give them an assignment to complete beyond the normal running of the house stuff, like picking up all the sticks off the lawn or some extra job that takes a long time and a lot of hard work. They also get $1 for every scripture they remember.
