Why Play Hire and Fire your Kids?
We understand how stressful it can be to constantly nag your Kids to brush their teeth, keep their hands to themselves, make their bed and on and on. So we developed a fun game-like system mimicking the workforce for your home, allowing you to HIRE your Kids for jobs around the house and FIRE them when they don't follow the family values & expectations.
Our game motivates Kids to take initiative using Recognition, Reward & Discipline. Teaching them how to respect your family values, how to be a team player, be responsible and be accountable.
You'll love how it makes your life easier, nurtures your family bond and how your Kids will gain the skills they need to function on their own in the real world.

SET FAMILY EXPECTATIONS - Code of Conduct
Think of your Family like a business - what are the company ("family") values and what is expected of every employee (“family member”).
Create your Expectations using our template. These are things around hygiene, manners or everyday must dos like: be kind, hands to yourself, no yelling, keeping clothes off the floor, turning lights off, making the bed etc.
Kids Kash and Incentive bonuses are given as rewards for following the Expectations.
These Expectations will be followed by every family member, at all times, yep, you too parents!
Then, HIRE your employees for extra jobs around the house! Create jobs (chores) for your Kids to be hired for. They'll choose as many as they want and earn extra kash or fun experiences of your choosing.
They'll compete to be your family's top performing Employee Of The Month (EOTM) and can be submitted to our monthly EOTM contest for prizes & recognition!
As long as your Kids follow the Expectations they will be eligible for Kids Kash and Incentive Programs. BUT! If your Kids deviate from any of these expectations, they get 3 X's (warnings), then are FIRED on the 4th. Incentive Program bonuses are taken away and consequence(s) are enforced such as No TV! or no Device!
