Sing Tao Daily, Posted: Feb 12, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO -- A Chinese American from Oakland, Calif. has designed a Web site that encourages children to do housework, reports the Sing Tao Daily. Through Handipoints.com, parents can assign their children chores and set the number of points the kids will get from completing them, and the kids can decide if they want to take the job. By doing housework, kids accumulating points that they can redeem later for rewards their parents pick. Each child user has a virtual cat that represents him or her, and can play games or talk to other children who use the Web site. Web site designer Viva Chu says he hopes children will learn good saving habits through the Web site.
