I love that I can use Rooster to reward our children for positive attitudes and kind behavior!
Track tasks & behavior with Stars
Set your child’s currency to Stars to use RoosterMoney as a reward chart, before they’re ready to have their own allowance. Give them a Boost to incentivise good habits and attach a note so they know why they received it!
Agree on the rules together
Whether you have a set weekly list pinned to the fridge, or just want to add one-off tasks, agree together on what actions will earn Stars. With Extra Jobs, the Stars get added as soon as you tap approve, helping reinforce those positive behaviors.

Using stars is a great kickstart to teaching your kids about earning and then using it to redeem a reward. If you aren’t ready to give money but want to reinforce positive behaviors, you can award stars and then let your kids make choices about what they want to do with it. That could be a trip to the ice cream shop or a pony riding lesson! The great thing is that you can set your own exchange rate.
Trade in Stars for rewards
Show them what their Stars could achieve by adding some rewards to the Goals pot. Your kids can check their progress and you can encourage them along the way!
Take your reward chart with you
Unlike the star chart you may have on the fridge at home, you can take RoosterMoney with you on holiday or to the store. This can be especially useful in making the rewards fun and easy to visualise for your little ones.
Reflect on their Progress
A great way to reinforce positive behavior is by reflecting on their achievements. You can use their Progress timeline to look back on what they’ve achieved or use the graph and summary cards in the Spend, Save and Give Pots!
This app has really helped us to keep a track of the rewards our son has earned and as a result we’ve seen improvement in his behavior.
Get them involved!
There’s nothing more satisfying than ticking off a task as complete or unlocking that reward you’ve worked so hard for. If they have their own device, you can give them their own login or you can share yours by setting a PIN, and they can access their profile using ‘Switch User’.
Start teaching good habits early
It’s also useful if you’re looking for ways to teach your youngest about earning and saving towards things while their older siblings are getting a regular allowance.
"Alexa, how many stars have I got?"
If you’ve got an Alexa, your kids can quickly check their responsibilities for the day or what Stars they’ve earned by asking her across the living room.
