Being such a tech savvy family we are always searching for new downloads and apps we can use as family. Our newest download is Marble Jar. A great portable version of a classic reward system my parents used when I was young. Marble Jar is an app for the iPhone and the iPad that uses the idea of positive reinforcement and child participation in monitoring progress.
We’re planning to use Marble Jar to help our daughter earn privileges by demonstrating consistent responsibility. Something she at times struggles with. At twelve we’re hoping that adding fun technology to such a simple concept will give her the encouragement she needs.
I have such high hopes for this app – it really is a great idea for children of all ages. I’ll be updating here about the rewards we set, the results we see, and some tips about using this app effectively.
