Chore bucks is fake money (you can buy or make)
Every chore your child does requires a certain amount (chore bucks)
Lets say its $2.00 to vaccum the kitchen floor, so every time they do it you give them the fake $2.00, it goes in a jar (chore buck jar) at the end of the week or two weeks or the end of a month you add them up and it goes towards rewards.
Like for us, if my oldes dd had required 30 chore bucks in one week she could pick friday night dinner out or a movie at the theater.
Or she could choose to save up her chore bucks for as long as she wanted to and get a certain toy she wanted like a 50.00 wii game would require 200.00 chore bucks etc....or whatever amount we decided on.
Or she could use them whenever it was a good time, last min wanting something like a new doll etc...she would count her chore bucks and say I have 90.00 chore bucks we would look ok 90.00 chore bucks gives you 30.00 dollars.
But if she whined or did not to what she was supposed to do, she did not ge them or would loose chore bucks from her jar, for attitude or throwing a fit etc....We also did homework bucks to back then, lol every page she did was like 3.00 in homework bucks, same idea really. lol
