Children can track progress to earn REWARDS that you define. Rewards can range from earning screen time or allowance to a family dance party! Link rewards to chores, behavior, habits, and goals to teach kids accountability. Using the FamJam reward manager encourages positive, sustainable habits in children.
What HABITS do you want your children to establish? Whether it is reading every day, exercising, practicing a musical instrument, or anything else, the FamJam habit manager makes it easy to track progress and ensure kids are consistently working to develop habits. Link habits to daily actions and rewards to inspire the behavior and actions you want from children in a positive way.
What GOALS do your children have? Kids can use FamJam as a tool to track step-by-step progress toward their daily, weekly, and monthly goals.

Ratings and Reviews
I’m loving the app so far! We’ve only been using it for a couple days but the kids are excited about the points.
I’ve read in the reviews that the developers are quick to respond so I’m writing a review to give, and get, feedback.
Firstly, I’d like to be able to edit the individual behaviors to comment on what they did to earn the points. Example: “helping” is a broad thing I can use often so I don’t want to specify in the creation. But I do want to scroll through the history and see that S got “helping” for putting his brother’s toy together.
Next, the kids have a allocated time for chores. I’d like an option to show what that time is, per chore. But also, they get points for having time left over. Is there a way to do the points for the chore, how long it took, and the points for any left over time?
I loooove the fact that a behavior can be dragged to the treasure chest for positive or the red flag for negative. Is there a way to make that for the chores as well? Such as, brush teeth gets points and not brushing takes points away?
Lastly, when I use an icon for a created chore or behavior, can that picture be kept in the apps records for future use? So I don’t have to find it in my photos again.
After all my searching, this is closest to what I am looking for. I applaud the effort and time it takes to make such a product and am grateful there are people who think like me but know how to make things like this! Keep it up!
We’re really loving this app but have two pieces of feedback. First, all of your avatars are white/Caucasian. Please diversify your avatars to create a more welcoming and inclusive app. Second, id love to be able to schedule or bunch tasks by time of day. Would be super helpful to have things in morning/after school/bedtime/etc. buckets. Could really help with habits and creating family routines 😉
Developer Response ,
Hi Kelly, thanks for the ideas. We apologize on the avatars and will be sure add options that better represent our users. In the meantime, you can always add your own custom avatars from pictures on your phone. When selecting an avatar, click on the camera icon on the top and select any picture on your device or take a picture. My kids love using this feature. I will think about your time of day option. So you don't need specific times, just groupings to organize events? I have an idea for this and will keep you posted! Thanks for your great feedback. Brian
Could use some tweaks
I love that it’s cross platform and the kids can even download it on their fire tablets. One major flaw is that you can select an individual point value that has been rewarded and undo it. And there’s no way to undo a goal reward value at all. If we could go into history and delete specific events that would be so much easier than “undo last completion ” or worst case “clean slate”
Also adding another parent account is difficult when u try to share it it prompts you to make an account but then if they already have one you can’t add them as a secondary user.
Just those few tweaks would make it so much more user friendly and less frustrating when your trying to get the hang of it all
UPDATE: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! Being able to edit each action in history makes it SO MUCH more forgiving when you are still trying to figure out how it all works!!!! This is an amazing app!!!
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback! If you go to the 3 line menu, click on "Parent Review," then "History." Here you can review, edit, and undo anything for each child. The undo last completion is there just in case of an accidental drag and drop! We can delete a user if you want to set up as a secondary account instead which is the better way for families. We will make this more clear. Please email me at email@example.com. Thanks, Brian
