Parents, does this sound familiar?
Parent: Did you feed Sparkles our beloved family goldfish?
Kid: Ugh... I forgot. (poor Sparkles!)
Parent: Did you clear your dishes from the table?
Kid: (Eye roll)
Parent: For the love of all things that are good in this world, stop fighting with your sibling!
Both Kids: It was their fault!
PopChart Family is a modern & fun behavior management game/app system--for families w/ kids.
Made by a family, for families; PopChart Family helps Parents easily & automatically manage their kid's chores, keep track of their goals, reward and encourage positive behavior and deploy a digital allowance.
PopChart is for Families, NOT Advertising Companies.
Since we're a subscription based service, we are not dependent on advertising revenue. This provides us the freedom to remove all third-party library code that does not enhance the end user experience.
1 Parent App + 1 Kid Mode Game
Parents get the Parent mode app.
Kiddos get the Kid mode game.
While in Parent Mode, Parents have special parent powers, muhahaha!
Here are several key abilities we plan to have available for the March launch.
- Add and update their kid's accounts
- Easy Points deposit & withdrawal
- Change "Points" name to "Whatever You Want" ability
- View Point balances and ledger
- Create or change chores, goals & tasks per kid user
- Choose from optional pre-made chore suggestions
- Add new marketplace items (rewards) real and/or virtual, worth real money or not.
- Choose from optional pre-made marketplace items that are free or inexpensive for the family.
PopTown is the hub of Kids Mode game and uses a familiar, scrollable, simple-to-use views and animations. PopTown will be populated by the kid and parent avatars.
In The Office, Kids are able to see their tasks for the day/week/month and complete them to earn points.
The Marketplace has items from Parents that are worth Points-or whatever you want to name them, actually. You can call them "WhaggleBorps" if you want to!
We have some suggested items that are ready-to-go, you can optionally use as well. Like the "Family dance party!" - say what? Yes, that is free and awesome. Or, "20 extra mins of screen time" that is like modern day kid gold right there.
The Avatar Shop has over 500 pieces of hand-drawn clothes, costumes and accessories. Kids can deck out their own personal avatar and buy new items with WhaggleBorps (points) they have earned.
Once saved, the Avatar is optionally added to family's (family only) PopTown as an additional character in the map.
At The Bank, Kids can see a full ledger of their points earned and spent.
And finally, Home is where kids can collect a daily chore check-in reward (optionally toggle on/off) and where they can see all of their previous achievements and unlocked items.
Okay, let's talk Rewards!
The idea of PopChart started with a sticky note, three fighting boys and two frustrated parents. We started a point keeping system to reward good behavior but quickly found that it was unmanageable on simple sticky notes, especially when we are constantly on the go. I proposed the idea of making an app to my husband Sam, a developer; and so PopChart was invented.
Using Sam's programming skills, my art background and our combined knowledge of parenting three kiddos we are developing a modern solution to the old ways of charting chores, awarding good deeds and encouraging better behavior in kids. PopChart has been a game-changer for our family and now we need your help to share PopChart with the world.
*WhaggleBorps is a made up word.
