  1. Your “get satisfaction” process of leaving ideas was maddening, forcing me to create an account or log in with my social media accounts. I’m frustrated that it isn’t simpler to leave you an idea.

    Here’s the idea: I have more than one child capable of accomplishing various chores. Sometimes they like to trade or someone is at camp for a week or spending the night at someone’s house and a sibling is willing to do his or her job that day. I’d love to have something that allows the parent to easily re-assign a chore (that way it is parent-approved/regulated). It’s kind of like the skip button, except the sibling to whom it is reassigned gets the extra points (without the parent having to create a separate, one-time chore for the willing replacement worker). It’s probably a complicated matrix to create at a technical level, but it would help my complicated household live more simply and happily 🙂

    Thank you for receiving my idea here.
