GOOD MONEY HABITS FOR KIDS
It’s never too soon to teach your kids good money management skills. Statistics show that children today have more disposable income than ever before ... and they’re spending at a rapid rate. Of course, spending is easy; but learning to save is crucial for their success in later life. If you haven’t yet opened a savings account for your child, do it now. All it takes is a $5 minimum deposit to a savings account. Then show your children how to make their money grow.
EARN PRIZES WHILE SAVING
GPO’s Kids’ Cash program offers children benefits like:
GET INVOLVED WITH YOUR KID'S SAVINGS GOALS
Help your children set savings goals, and make sure they are realistic. These may include making weekly or monthly deposits, or saving a specific amount over a period of time, or saving to purchase a special item. Save, spend and share by having your child divide his/her money equally into three banks, one to spend, one to save, and one to share or donate.
Show you value your children’s efforts by rewarding good savings habits. Rewards may be as simple as a milkshake on the way home from making a deposit at the credit union, or a movie when a savings goal is met. Or, if your child is younger than 12, open up a GPO Kids' Cash Savings Account and they can earn great gifts for their deposits!
