Introducing Family Tasks, the latest innovation for families by eduPad's founders
After Monster Messenger joined forces with Facebook Messenger Kids earlier this year, we were left with plenty of free time to think about someting new.
So we adressed a subject we wanted we had been mulling about for a looong time: chores. This is a parenting issue every parent face one day or the other. The idea was to digitalize an offline DIY magnetic board which we’d been using on our fridge with our children for years, to make it even more easy, fun and efficient.
Family Tasks was born!
Family Tasks is a super-simple yet powerful chore management system for all families. Family members, tasks, who does what today. And that’s about it. And it works remarkably well!
Family Tasks is available as a progressive web app, which works on any type of devices: smartphone, tablet, computer.Parents can set one-time or reccuring tasks, with the choice of rotating or days of the week tasks for the later.
The interface is super-easy to use, without any fancy, useless feature, with a clean interface easy to read even for the youngest users.
To the difference of other family chores apps, there is no nudging feature, as the app does not encourage to reward chores, because of the backlash effect it can have on education, values and children behavior in time.
There is a very detailed method to introduce chores in Family Tasks’ website: https://familytasks.io/best-practices/
“Family Tasks helps parents involve their children in daily home tasks and teach children responsibility”
Icing on the cake, Family Tasks works at its best when used in tandem with Dock Dock!, the smart dock for fridge which instantly transforms any fridge into a Smart Fridge we launched a couple of months ago.
With Dock Dock!, tasks are where they belong, right on the frdge, visible from everyone at all times. No more “I forgot it was my turn” excuses!
