Yes it would work IMO. As long as you set up the goals for them and follow through. It certainly works for my 7 , 5 and 4 year olds.

yes, most definately. It works for kids who are upwards into their teens.
You need to be consistant and use the marble jars for EVERYTHING, though. You need to use that as the new currancy and anything the kids want, use the marble jars as a way of them getting it.

Andrew says (all the time) "I want that!" when he's watching the tv commercials. I just tell him "well, then, you'd better think about getting your marble jar filled then, eh?"

It also helps that I don't get my kids anything and they don't really get 'special treats' all that often to begin with so if your kids aren't used to being spoiled, then any treat is all the more important because they know that that's the only way they'll be getting special treats.
