How to use iRewardChart to teach your children good habits

Buffer

A few weeks ago I came across the post "iRewardChart - Reward Yourself and Your Kids" written by Carolyn Nicander Mohr about an application called iRewardChart, for rewarding children using stars.Being the Dad of two boys (there is something so different and difficult about raising boys compared to girls) who is a serious fan of apps, it really caught my attention.
