Tips for Raising Money-Smart Kids

Show kids the value of saving; start early enough, and they will be seasoned pros by the time they turn 18. They get to watch their money grow as compound interest works its magic and can set short-term and long-term goals for the money they save. The reward of achieving these goals will teach life lessons on patience and planning.

  • Have conversations using real-life examples, like setting aside a portion of allowance and understanding the difference between short-term and long-term savings can help.
  • Try giving your kids a digital allowance. It’s a great way to teach both money management skills and how to use online banking tools.
  • Create a household budget and set financial goals with your teens.
