Service That Teaches Children How To Avoid The Next
AlphaGrade starts an online service
that is based on the age-old practice of parents linking
allowance to chores. The free AlphaGrade service, takes
this weekly allowance undertaking one step further by
developing a system that is transparent and makes the
child accountable for their actions.
Cupertino, Calif January 15, 2009 - AlphaGrade (www.AlphaGrade.com)
introduces a comprehensive web based tool for parents
and guardians to assist children in developing healthy
habits to stay on top of school work and home chores by
linking allowance to results. Motivating and monitoring
the progress of young children and teenagers has always
been subjective and can often lead to debate between
parent and child. AlphaGrade uses
weekly progress and
self-assessment by children to monitor and benchmark
We know that "Easy Credit" is
one of the primary reasons for the present recession.
There is no guarantee that banks will not repeat the
same mistakes in the future, but it is possible to teach
our children today about the risks of spending without
the ability to earn. Tying in their daily school work
and home chores to their weekly allowance clearly
establishes a link between ability to earn and spend.
Assuming a child imbibes the habit of "earning" weekly
allowance, it may be less likely for them to become
victims of the next recession.
Every child has a will to perform better than they
presently do -- one of the problems is that they do not
have a visible benchmark to achieve or historical data
to compare improvement. AlphaGrade has developed a set
of effective tools that include the
historical reports, charts, allowance statements and
other utilities that
effectively motivate a child to succeed.
Parents understand the value of benchmarking and
earnings, a normal practice in any work place.
AlphaGrade aims to teach children the same concept of
earned compensation by showing them a visible history of
their performance and path to improvement. Parents
expect children to do their school and home related
chores without having to repeatedly tell them or get
into an antagonistic situation. On the other hand,
children are not in the habit of doing their routine
tasks and would rather ignore their existence.
AlphaGrade links these daily school and home chores to
their 'earned' allowance, which gives them a repeated
weekly reminder to do what is expected from them -- all
in a non-confrontational setting.
"I have been using the system with my child and I can
see first-hand, the difference it has made in our
relationship," says Mahesh Hinduja, AlphaGrade.com's
founder. "I don't have to tell him what is expected --
it is as if we have a contract for school and home
chores that is documented through the AlphaGrade web
site. I have definitely seen an improvement in school
work as he is now more motivated and pushes to achieve
his AlphaGrade goals. He recently achieved his first
milestone with AlphaGrade and used his AlphaGrade earned
allowance to buy ice skates."
AlphaGrade also provides for children to build Wish
lists and invite family members and friends to act as
Sponsors and be a part of the child's development and
