I believe that one of the greatest gifts you can give your kids is a strong work ethic.

I know it doesn’t feel like a gift when you are training and teaching and explaining and re-doing and inspecting their work over and over again when they are little.

I know it doesn’t feel like a gift when it takes 5 times as long for you to get anything done while they are working alongside you.

I know it doesn’t feel like a gift when they have bad attitudes and complain about having to work while their friends get to play.

I know it doesn’t feel like a gift when you are tired and worn out and it’d be so much easier and quicker for you to just do it yourself rather than having them help or do their chores.


But if you stick with it, someday they will be old enough to do all of the laundry for your family and you’ll just write it on their list and they will sort, wash, dry, fold, and put it away with zero help from you and with zero complaints from them because they just know it’s what is expected of them.

And (hopefully!) they’ll carry this same work ethic into the real world someday and it will take them far in life. Then, all those days, weeks, and months of effort and training will pay off in big dividends!

Mamas in the trenches: I know it’s tough. I know it feels like you aren’t making any headway and that your kids will never be old enough to do anything but make messes and need your help.

But the light is at the end of the tunnel… hang on and keep plodding forward. And you’ll have your own in-house laundry service before you know it! 😉

I’m so grateful that my parents taught me to work hard from a young age. Looking back, I realize how much doing chores as a child prepared me so well for being a wife, mom, and business owner!

That’s why I was excited when Homey asked me about doing a review of their new app that helps teach kids about money through completing chores and working toward goals.

I love that the Homey app not only encourages kids to develop a strong work ethic, but it teaches kids how money is earned, encourages long-term goal setting, instills real life financial skills, and connects the whole family with a fun approach to paid chores.

Here’s how the Homey app works:

1. Download the Homey app here for Android or iPhone. You can access its basic features for FREE, or you can opt to upgrade your account to premium for $3.99/month or $29.99 annually.

They even offer an unlimited feature for $6.99/month or $49.99 annually. {Scroll down to the bottom of this post for an opportunity to win a FREE year of the unlimited subscription!}

2. Set up your household and then a profile for each member within the app.

3. Decide on one device or multiple devices. If your kids are old enough to have their own mobile devices, you can have linked individual profiles on separate mobile devices. If your kids are younger, the individual profiles can all be shared on one family device. As the household creator, you also have the ability to set permissions and roles for each family member.

4. Set up chores for each child’s profile, and decide if the chores will be paid or unpaid. In our house, we have a system of paid chores and non-paid chores, so I LOVE this option!

:: You can choose to set a chore as a responsibility that is not paid to teach your child the importance of contributing to the family without getting paid.

:: If you choose to label a task as an extra paid chore, you’ll need to designate the amount of coins each chore is worth. Coins earned can be traded in for specified rewards within the app.

5. Set rewards for each child’s profile. Depending on your household system, there are options to set up a weekly allowance for chores, wishlist items (toys, screen time, etc.), or extra money.

Regardless, each reward requires a specified amount of coins that teaches children how to save up what they’ve earned from their hard work. Kids can even set up their own wishlists to practice setting long term goals for themselves.

6. Connect your children’s checking or savings bank accounts with the app, if so desired. Homey allows you to transfer the allowance or extra money earned directly to your child’s bank account.

I love this, because I think it’s SO important to teach kids real life financial skills at an early age, and I’d rather them make $3 mistakes now when they are little to hopefully prevent some $3,000 and $30,000 mistakes down the road.

7. Kids start doing chores, working towards their goals, and getting rewarded for their hard work through the Homey app! Each time a task is finished, they just take a photo of their progress or completion so that you know what got done at a glance. It’s that simple!

    so many reasons o try it. Our chore chart keeps getting changed by little sister…;) I just had a discussion with my son about paid vs unpaid chores. This would be a great way to track that!

    • Pam Philebar says:

      This sounds great, going to download it now. Hopefully this will make chores an easier subject in my household. Thank you

  • Joann says:

    This would be great! Currently our chore list is magnetized to the fridge, but it keeps getting buried under art pictures. By Saturday we realized we forgot all of the new responsibilities!

  • Elizabeth H. says:

    This looks like something great to check out

  • Leslie says:

    We have really been struggling with chores at our house. So excited to learn about app. I think it will make a huge difference.

  • Lisa says:

    We’ve been struggling to come up with a way to keep track of chores and having our son learn new skills. This seems like it would be an amazing help for that.

  • I would love to try this with my daughters. The motivation would really help us get a better chore routine in place.

  • Andrea says:

    We have been wanting to introduce a system of chores–paid and unpaid–to our son. This seems like the perfect way to get started!

  • Kelly Gerber says:

    I would love this for my household. It would make it simple to know who is responsible for what and what still needs to be done. Love the idea of adding my kids to assist in the chores through this process.

  • Danielle says:

    With 5 young kids I so need a way to organize chores and rewards etc!!

  • Elizabeth Swanberg says:

    I would love to try this app since my daughters check their phones frequently. It is another way to communicate the chore system!

  • Shelli says:

    I struggle to keep track of my kids’ chores and how to pay them.

  • Chantielle says:

    I would love to try this app with my kiddos. We have been searching for a system that will work for us and haven’t yet found the right answer. I hope this can be it.

  • Sharon I. says:

    I’d love to try Homey with my 2 sons! We are struggling right now to get them to do their chores and help out around the house.

  • KC says:

    I love the idea of integrating technology and an app with this! Great timing as I was just looking for something like this to kick off our summer – very excited to try out the features and the flexibility of the paid options as we grow and need them! Awesome!!

  • Traci Anderson says:

    I’m super curious about this program! My boys are 5 and 8 this month and we are really struggling getting the older one to see the purpose of chores and the younger is distracted by everything and learning bad habits from big brother. I will be investigating further tonight!

  • Wendy Mendiola says:

    This sounds like a great app to try out.

  • asiah mckeehan says:

    I’m looking forward to trying out this app. I’ve been looking for a way to get away from the standard paper chore charts. My kids are always on their electronics (unless on punishment). This will definitely be easier for them to do what needs to be done and hopefully simplify life a little bit in my house.

  • Marianne says:

    This sounds really interesting! I especially like the idea of using non-monetary rewards, and kids being able to save up for a larger reward, rather than just settling up every week. It will also help us keep track of what’s been done, which we’re not very good at.

  • Sandra says:

    This would be a great asset to have in our home of 7, especially for my two teens (step-daughters) who aren’t in our home throughout the week. Definitely going to check into getting this!

  • Kim esposito says:

    This is on point with my sons. I think they will love it and will be more motivated to get their work done. Mom of 4 boys.

  • Amanda says:

    I absolutely love this! I think that this would be a great replacement for our current whiteboad chart, which I can never remember to update regularly enough to keep track of anything.

  • Christi Parks says:

    Been struggling to find a way to get my little ones to willingly help out around the house. They are young enough that anything they get to do with the tablet is super exciting. This might be just what we need. Thanks for the idea!

  • Katie says:

    This looks like a great app to help with our chores! Thanks for sharing about it!

  • Laura says:

    I think this would definitely motivate my 8 year old. Thank you!

  • Andrea Gasser says:

    I would LOVE to try this–we already try to do chores and rewards but it is often less organized than I would like with 5 kids! This would be a game changer I hope!!

  • Deborah says:

    My favorite part is that it can be used across multiple devices. That way it is not left to only one person.

  • Nicole says:

    I would love to win a free trial of this because I feel my girls are at a critical age where this would be an awesome tool in their development.

  • Diane says:

    I’ve actually been looking for something just like this to help with organizing chores in our household. This looks like just what I wanted!

  • Michelle says:

    I’m really interested in trying this app. We are struggling to get our children to do chores without all the grumbling.

  • Briana King says:

    I love this idea! I feel like I have to reinvent the chore wheel every couple months. This app could really be something our busy family can stick with.

  • Holly A says:

    I have four kids and while they are still young we’ve recently started trying to be more diligent about enforcing their chores. This app seems like it would be great to help us manage everything!

  • Jasmin says:

    I am wanting to get a good chore system in place to use this summer. I am excited about this and a bit overwhelmed at the same time (maybe it has to do with the fact that my children are 8 and 10 and I still don’t have them doing chores on a regular basis :/). My kids get out of school in 2 days. Summer here we come!!! 😀

  • Heather H says:

    We always struggle with chores in our house. This little oks like a great thing to try!

  • Nicole Morris says:

    I would love to try this to manage the kids chores smoothly this summer! Avoid the fighting.

  • Laurie Moudy says:

    This is great! I have a chore chart but my problem is remembering to pay them! That is terrible I know but this would help me keep track of what chores they have completed and when they have gotten paid for completing them.

  • Adrienne says:

    I would love to try this and see if it works for our family. Sometimes life gets so hectic and we are running around here and there, or plans change, and I haven’t kept track or stuck to a schedule. I think this could help motivate and track responsibilities and chores.

  • Hope Neel says:

    It is sometimes easier to just do all the chores myself, but I know teaching my kids to do them independently is worth the time and effort. This app would be so helpful to keep us all on track.

  • What’s the minimum age to start this? my elder one just turned 3. Might he be too young?

    • The youngest user that we know of is 5, and he’s been using Homey with the help of his dad. Homey is very visual, so it works with young kids as well, but three might still be a little too young. You can always give it a try and see if it works! And let us know, we’re always happy to hear from our users 🙂

  • Jennifer C says:

    I would love to use this with my daughter to help her be more independent in what she needs to do each day.

  • Teresa says:

    Last summer my children and I worked out a chore system. Some chores they had to do and some were extras. They earned screen time instead if money. This would be a great way to keep track and convert the screen time to money eventually… What a great app! Can’t wait to play around, thanks for the share!

  • Jen says:

    Love this idea! Wanting to be more consistent in the area and this sounds like a great system!

  • Rachel says:

    Would LOVE to try this app! With four children it’s a struggle sometimes to get them to do their chores. Seems like this would take the guess work out of it for them!

  • Erin says:

    This would be awesome to help me be more consistent with chores!

  • Joanna Jones says:

    I want to try to help my son learn to be independent and teach him life skills now that he can use or that he needs when he gets into the real world.

  • Joan says:

    I’d love to try this as we have a hard time being consistent with chores.

  • Melody says:

    We need to be more structured and organized with chores and allowance. This app sounds like it will be a great asset.

  • Maria says:

    This seems like a great app for kids. I think it would really help my daughters understand how rewarding it can be to save up for something big.

  • Ashley says:

    My daughter’s are 9 and 13. We’ve never really found a chore system that suits our needs just right and end up with multiple systems. Being able to monitor and reward with a single application sounds devine! I feel like this could definitely help me maintain our single parent home with less confusion and is it done yet headaches.

  • C says:

    Any incentive for doing chores is great!

  • Mary Spillum says:

    This looks like a great way to motivate my children and keep track of chores.

  • Renee Dixon says:

    I am definitely going to check this app out. My older two grumble so much about their chores or they tell me they forgot. I’m hoping this will help them remember.

  • Kimberly Theall says:

    This app comes at a perfect time for my family, as I’ll be taking a job where I will no longer be home with my 10 and 12 year old daughters during the summer. This will help me know that they are doing their chores during the day while I’m at work! I love this!

  • Kim K says:

    I love how the Homey app teaches them about money while they learn about responsibilities and being independent.

  • Samantha says:

    My son LOVES technology and HATES chores, so this app sounds like a great way to revamp our chore tasks in our home this summer! I like that you can have paid and unpaid chores! And the best part to me is that we can keep track of how much I owe my son in an app! I had a running list but that wasn’t as exciting as saving it in the app! Oh and I am excited to see how the photos work too!

  • Ian Kim says:

    This app would be awesome. Have 4 kiddos so the free account wouldn’t be enough. Im also having such a hard time keeping track of kids chores with physical charts. This would help me & keep them motivated. 🙂

  • Jen says:

    Sounds like a great app. Would love to try this in our household for assigning and tracking chores plus giving incentive on some of them.

  • Ian Kim says:

    This app would be awesome. Have 4 kiddos so the free account wouldn’t be enough. I’m also having a hard time keeping track of kids chores with physical charts. This would help me & keep them motivated. 🙂

  • Ian says:

    This app would be awesome. Have 4 kiddos so the free account wouldn’t be enough. Im also having such a hard time keeping track of kids chores with physical charts. This would help me & keep them motivated. 🙂

  • Heidi says:

    Chores, the curse word in our family. Trying to teach our children responsibility and how to manage money some chores need to be fine just as part of the family but some jobs earn commission. We have been trying different apps to find one that works well for our 4 kids. This looks very intriguing. Would love to win and give it a try. Thanks.

  • Suzanne says:

    Motivated Moms has an amazing app that is similar in that it is a chore system/app that I use to designate chores to. I have loved that Motivated Moms list the chores and includes things I would forget so I can get it all done. Then I just go in and assign which child gets what including me and my husband. I have it set up to go to each child’s device. It has worked beautifully. It shows up on our phones as MoMo (Motivated Moms) so we call it Momo! The other neat thing is that I can just print it if that is easier that day. I have decided to pay the kids $3/day for all chores completed. It is simple and works.

    So what I love about Homey is that it sounds like it has taken things a step further. It would help kids connect the dots with money and work. I also love the fact that it links up to pay your kids. I am ALWAYS forgetting to bring home dollar bills to pay kids with and there is nothing worse than not getting paid for your work. Its a downer. Plus I want my no – to be no and my yes – to be a yes. Some chores “no” money but other chores “yes” to money. Having goals similar to Dave Ramsey Junior kids that need to be worked for is fantastic!!

    My question would be – do I have to come up with the chores? One neat thing about Motivated Moms is that it creates a chore list for you. Then I just make modifications as needed. I love it because I hate the chore of making a chore list. Its hard.

    I did notice that it looks like you get pictures to go with the chores. That would be nice.

    If it creates a chore list for me then this sounds like it would be a great match for my family!!

    So please pick me!! I already have experience doing something similar and would love to give it a try with the free subscription.

  • Jennifer K says:

    My kids think all tech is cool right now so I think this would be a positive way to get them motivated to actually do the chores and by a deadline- like that part.

  • Trina says:

    Going to check this out… could use some help motivating my kids to help out!

  • Stacy Whitaker says:

    My kids love lists and using the iPad. This sounds like a match made in heaven!

  • Kelly says:

    With a 6 & 16 year old this app would make it easy to enhance their work ethic even though they have very different needs. Plus easy tracking for me =win/win!

  • Cristina says:

    I would love to try Homey because as a full time working mom, if my kids don’t help around the house, it’s hard for me to make time for things I love, like running!

  • Dawn says:

    The homey app looks like a great way to use technology to draw kids in and teach some valuable life/work lessons.

  • Michelle Cochran says:

    Downloaded the App! This is fantastic! I can’t wait for my daughter’s ipod to charge so I can start to assign her tasks!

  • Raji says:

    This app sounds wonderful. I am currently looking at different apps for allowances/chores for my 8 and 10 year old. This sounds like a good one.

  • Shani Richart says:

    This app sounds like a good tool for my crew. I also love the fact that you can choose whether or not they should get paid for a chore. I agree that some chores are just part of being in a family:)

  • Dovey Elliott says:

    We have 8 kids. It is SO hard to keep up with inspecting the chores and then keeping up with each kid and their personal “currency” or reward system! This looks like it would keep it for me. I love that it teaches them to work towards a long-term goal but they can see visual progress. This looks great! I’m intrigued!

  • Rachel Somero says:

    My children love checklists and if they could take a picture of the task once done I know they’d have more motivation. I have six children between 6 months and 9 years so this would be a very helpful tool!

  • Becky says:

    This looks brilliant! My oldest is still just under 2, so this is more something I’ll have to keep in mind for the future. But he’s still young enough to think that helping me empty the dishwasher and feed the dogs is fun, so I’d like to keep building on that momentum!

  • Christine says:

    You can do the same thing on paper for free. $50 is too expensive and in my opinion, frivolous which is the opposite of what the app is trying to teach children.

  • Patty says:

    Wow, this app sounds awesome!! I’m always looking for a way to assign my kids chores, while being able to follow up on what they’ve done!! Take a picture of the chore when they’re done??? Love it!!! Thank you for this opportunity!

  • Annie says:

    I’m so glad I stumbled across this article! I struggle with feeling like I have to nag my kids to get chores done and them constantly complaining. I’m reluctant to attach allowance because when they have a home of their own, they won’t get paid to clean their room or wash dishes. I’m going to try this app and see how it works for us.

  • Kristin says:

    Our family of 7 has tried so many different chore methods! Maybe this one will stick!

  • Christina says:

    This would be a great app to win and implement into our family. This app would help me keep track of my younger children’s chores, which they often get by without doing, simply because I forget what their chores are. It would also help me to remember to check up on my older children’s chores and reward them appropriately (they are of the age of getting checking accounts soon)

  • Jessica Mitchell says:

    We have tried several kinds of systems. I would love to try this so we could show them a difference between chores you can earn money and chores that are just your responsibility!

  • Kim says:

    I’ve been trying to figure out a chore system that will stick. I like that this one allows for paid and unpaid chores. Sounds like a system that can grow with your kids.

  • Carolynn says:

    I have found that switching up the chore system we do a few times a year helps chores from becoming mundane. Right now our biggest chore struggle is doing the chores completely instead of just doing enough to get by.

  • Misty says:

    I would love to have some type of system. This looks great!

  • Jamie says:

    This sounds great for older kids too! I have 4 teens that need to be motivated!. And for my special needs child it will be fun for her to keep track of her chores on her tablet. I cant wait to try it out!

  • Erin Hoak says:

    I’m going to download this free version now! 5 kids with a wide span of ages in always looking for a “better” way to get them to do thier chores without me nagging them! We’ll see how this works!

  • Tatia says:

    This would be wonderful for my 6 year old who I have to argue with constantly about doing his part around the house. This would give him more excitement and drive about doing his chores!

  • Bethany says:

    Maybe my kids will be more motivated this summer with their own app to keep track of what they are doing. Excited for summer and can’t wait to get family on board with helping out around the house and then we can go have fun! Love that you can do paid and unpaid chores.

  • Charlotte says:

    I’ve too often just done what needed to be done, but now I’m struggling with my kids not doing certain things because I’ve always done them. This might be the ticket to get back on track!

  • Johanna says:

    This looks like a great system to try! It can be complicated to set up appropriate jobs for each child’s skill level, and make it seem clear and fair for my kids (especially the one with autism). We have been planning to try a combo paid/unpaid system too.

  • Kristina says:

    I would love to win this. This looks like something my children would like. Thanks!

  • Rebekah says:

    I would love to win this because I’m expecting baby #5 and I need to get some kind of chore list figured out b4 baby and I think this would be perfect.

  • Ashley B says:

    Not only does this look fun for the kids but fun for the adults! Any extra motivation to tackle the “yucky” chores!

  • Nic Milo says:

    I have 4 kiddos, age 6-11 and we have many weekly chores and I’m always struggling with when/ how to pay them for their chores, trying to keep them motivated and being consistent- I’m pretty sure I would love the consistency of this app!!!

  • Naomi says:

    Similar app that is free and geared toward younger ages is Chore Monster. My kids love it.

  • Sara says:

    I have been discussing chores and allowances with my husband for this summer now that our kids are old enough to understand and are capable of some chores. I haven’t gotten started yet because there’s so many ideas and charts Iran overwhelming. This app would give us a great start!

  • Julia says:

    This sounds like the perfect solution for my 5to. She wants to earn money but is a terrible money Handler. As soon as she has money she spends it on frivolous things, or she leaves it out and loses it. Earlier this week we took her sister to the ER because she had left out her pennies and we thought the baby might have eaten one one. I love the idea of earning rewards and keeping track of money virtually! Also, marking her chores off on the tablet might be enough reward on its own for getting them done. 🙂

  • Niki Vail says:

    I currently use a paper chore and commission sure tracking sheet… With five kids this can become pretty tedious with lots of paper. I love the idea of everything being paperless!

  • Jaime says:

    This seems like a great idea! My kids whine and complain about doing any chore. This might be the motivation that they need.

  • Laura L. says:

    I’m excited to download and use this app, because my kids fit the description of what you were talking about in your post. I know how valuable a strong worth ethic is but it is draining sometimes to continue to push them when it feels like a continual struggle. Thank you for this post!

  • Tracy says:

    My son and I need to start packing for our very first move. We will be finally getting our own place. This app is perfect for me to keep track of these new chores and will be an asset when we get into our new place.

  • Jennifer Budinger says:

    I would love to try this with my daughters. They need the motivation and the money skills!

  • I would love to try this with my 6 year old daughter! We have started an allowance and basic chores, but she has recently started asking for other ways to earn money. This would be a perfect way to manage that process. I’ll definitely be checking this out!

  • Leah says:

    I would love to win this to help motivate my 13 and 7 year olds to do more chores. My 7 yo loves to help me, but if I ask her to do things on her own, I get a less than favorable response and the 13 yo is starting to act too much like a whiny teenager. 🙁 Need to nip this in the bud now! I will also try out the free option!

  • Christina says:

    I’ve tried a few different chore tracking systems for my 6 & 7 year old boys and haven’t had much luck. They are new and exciting for about a week and then the system eventually becomes even more work than trying to teach the boys how to do the chores. This app sounds easy for me and fun for them…excited to try it!!

  • Danielle says:

    Would love to try out the Homey app as we have always had great ideas to start a chore system with our kids but implementation is never great. this app seems to help motivate the kids in the different way.

  • Jenna says:

    This sounds perfect, we always come up with great ideas but stink at keeping up with it!

  • Yvonne N says:

    Would love to give this a try.

  • Lee says:

    I would love to win this for my family. Not only do I want to teach my kids in a positive way to do chores, but also that it’s part of being a team and we all can do fun things together. I also think it will help me from nagging them and getting frustrated from repeating myself.

  • Kelly Hess says:

    We are just getting back into our summer paid chores. I would love to try this with our 8 and 11 year old. I think it would really motivate them!

  • Kristen says:

    My 5 year old is pretty great with chores, but my 3 year old is trying my patience. I know so much is tied to my lack of consistency! Maybe something like this would help me stay accountable 🙂

  • Stacey says:

    Would love to try this since we are just starting to actually keep track of unpaid and paid chores and being they have ipads now they can each have it on their own.

  • JenW says:

    I would like to try this out for my 10 year old. I like the idea of being able to track responsibilities and jobs differently, and that responsibilities must be completed before jobs become available.

  • Leslie says:

    Thank you for sharing this. I need help. I seem to be searching for something that will work far too often. This looks promising. I have several that are good at doing what is asked. Some that need the prompts. One that is terrible. Thinking the built in rewards that don’t rely on me but rather on them would. E great.

  • Zola Paget says:

    I can’t wait to try this with my 6-year-old!

  • Tina says:

    What an awesome idea! I would love to win the unlimited app. I am awful at chore charts and would think this would work so much better!

  • Julia says:

    I am so excited to check this app out. I think could be just want we need to encourage our boys to do their chores and stick with it! The app looks easy to use and navigate for parents and adults. I can’t wait to check out the free version and start giving it a try!

  • Tara says:

    This sounds like it’s just the thing I need to keep track of my kids’ chores. Love that you can designate them as paid or unpaid!

  • Lauren Gonzalez says:

    Sounds like a really cool app! My 5 year old helps around the house but it would be nice to have a place to list everyone’s tasks in one place, especially mine!

  • Gina says:

    Would love to have a way to organize my three sons chores!

  • Kristel says:

    Woukd love to try something different to keep my kids on track with compmeting chores.

  • Sarah says:

    I have 4 kids and work part-time. We live very busy lives and could use a little organization! The kids also would like the opportunity to earn some money. If they’re going to be on their devices they might as well be seeing what they’ve got for chores!

  • Samantha D says:

    This would be fantastic to use with my 4 kids 🙂 And they would love that it’s an app. Thanks!

  • Amber says:

    My husband and I are currently in a financial bind and have been unable to give our children everything they want. I think this would be a great tool to use to teach them more about exactly how much it takes to buy something and how you have to save up to achieve what you really want.

  • Jaime S says:

    I would love to win this! We have been trying to find a way to keep our 7yo on task with her chores without complaining. Especially since summer began, we are focusing a bit more on this to set a good routine as she goes into the next school year. She knows now that she cannot play until her chores are done, but it would be great to have a visual for her for those rewards as well as allowance earnings!

  • Krista says:

    I’m really excited to try this out with my kids. We have been wanting to start a more formal chore system so I think this would be a great and interactive way to initiate it!

  • Robin says:

    I feel guilty for not making my son do more chores than he does.

  • Katy P. says:

    We’ve been contemplating starting chores for our four-year old. This is intriguing, I was thinking more along the lines of a sticker chart, but this sounds promising to keep me on the ball as well.

  • Kathlena Reed says:

    Would love to give this a try but it won’t let me sign up for a paid membership, it says unavailable in my county. I just recently set up a savings account for my son so this would be great!

  • Melissa says:

    Wow! Why would I not want this APP what a great way to “connect” with this new generation. My “old fashion” chore chart is just not working for my 9 and 13 year old. Perhaps this could be the answer to my prayers of getting my kids to help more

  • Amy S. says:

    My kids love logging things online so I think this would be a hit!

  • rachel says:

    I think this is a great app idea! I’d never heard of this, but I love that each kid can have their own profile on their own device! I’m definitely trying this once we move into our new house (next week)!!!!!!!!!

  • Amy says:

    I think this app may be a very useful tool to help our family stay on track decluttering and keeping the house clean! I am totally setting up a profile for myself as well as the kids!

  • Tzivy says:

    Looks really interesting.

  • Melissia Dillmuth says:

    I would love to win this. I have three children and we live in Korea. There are no other opportunities for my children to earn money here except through paid chores, so I want to use a system like this to teach them about earning, saving and spending. They are 15, 13 and 9. It would be very beneficial to us.

  • jill says:

    With 5 kids and multiple attempts at keeping Chores organized this would be huge for our family. I so agree with the training being daunting as everything takes longer and attitudes are not always good. But we moved to a 8 Acre Farm to encourage hard work ethics. Hard to keep a farm up and house clean. This would be beneficial for our family of 7

  • Wendi says:

    This sounds like a cool app and I know everything is more fun according to my children if it’s connected to electronics! Maybe chore lists would be more fun too!!

  • Nikki Deaver says:

    My best friend/sister by choice died the 27th of May. She adopted and was raising her 10 year old grandson. I am helping to raise her sweet boy. She did not have a chore plan in place. I think it will work best if he has a plan in place. He is ADHD and needs as much structure as possible. I would love to have this app, so he can visually see his progress. He is very tech savvy, so I think this would make chores more fun for him. We are also having to work on organization skills for him as he will be in Jr High when he goes back to school. With his mom dying and starting in a new school I know we need to do as much organization planning as possible this summer. This app would go a long way toward helping with organization. Thank you for this suggestion and the chance to win this app. Please keep us in your prayers.

  • Carmen says:

    We are just starting to implement an allowance and chores list in our family (our child is 6). I was going to do it on paper, but I’m sure my child would love to be able to see her account grow – especially as she works towards a money goal.

  • Tracey says:

    I have tried a couple other chore apps and none had the features I am looking for. My 3 kids are now 12, 13, and 15 and they finally all have their own devices. I’m anxious to try out Homey and see if it does what I want it to do! I hope they will be able to receive notifications of their chores as well as mark when they’re complete. The chore chart on the wall just didn’t cut it for us… 🙁 Excited to give this a try!

  • Tami says:

    I have a troublesome teenager who won’t do chores unless we stay on top of her. I think the Homey app will help us so that she starts to learn how working is an every day part of her life. Maybe she’ll be able to succeed financially because of the knowledge.

  • Michelle says:

    The Homey app sounds like a great way to start summer vacation on a positive note by getting the kids to help.

  • megan says:

    I would love this app because I have tried the paper list and my daughter loves them but I hate having to make them up each week. So some weeks it doesn’t get done. I would love to try an app to save time….I know selfish reason but there you have it 🙂
