What is Angel Maker?
You can use Angel Maker on the desktop without the accompanying app. Your PIN number allows you to manage charts, targets and stars while the child only has access to play with the chart. However, the Angel Maker concept is based on using the phone as a tool to take the reward chart out of the home and make winning stars a positive, behaviour-changing experience for a child throughout the day.
When you're out and about with your children, take the power of the reward chart with you. During the day, good behaviour earns stars that the child can claim when you allow them to push the button on the app - fun in itself. However, poor behaviour can mean the red button, and the loss of a star. When you get home, watch them hurry back to the desktop, laptop or tablet to play the interactive chart and see if they've done enough to reach their reward.
With Angel Maker, you sit with your child to choose a chart, agree a target and a reward, find and upload a reward picture, and agree the ground rules.
The child should associate Angel Maker with the opportunity for positive recognition rather than as a threat of stars being removed. They will come to recognise the sound that plays and the simple screen displayed, which shows their face and the +star and -star symbols. The sound (if switched on) is positive by default, but you can switch to a klaxon sound if more urgency is required.
