There’s no better way to help a child learn the value of saving money than to actually help them do it. One way to get them started: Make three jars. Label one for “playing,” one for “saving” and one for “sharing.” When they get a little older, it will be time to introduce them to the credit union.
Obviously, children can’t enter into contracts with financial institutions on their own. As a parent or guardian, you retain overall control of your children’s accounts. You can set parameters to grant your children more control and more access to their accounts as they grow older and more mature, and you can revoke it at any time.
Children’s savings accounts are generally designed to accommodate smaller account sizes. Many will have no monthly or annual fees, for example, and will have very small (or no) amounts required to open an account.
