Input, Processing Logic, Output and Task Documentation
When the application is first started, it will ask the user whether they are the parent or the child (line 2). If you answer parent, you will be prompted to enter a password (line 5), if the password is incorrect the program will go to line 6, if the password is correct then line 7 will be displayed. Once the password is entered, the parent will have the option to input up to three chores for the child to complete (line 8). That concludes the steps for the user if they are signed on as the parent.
As the child, the program will goto line 4 and then line 9 since it is the child signing in. Line 11 will display the chores the child will need to get done for the day.
