I'm a Certified Financial Education Instructor, and my Superpower is both handling money + teaching others how to do the same. Still, I'm obligated to tell you that I'm not a financial advisor (you can stalk my About page for more about me), and that this site is for information and entertainment purposes only (thank goodness, right? Your kid doesn't need another snooze-fest educational site). The content herein should not be mistaken for professional financial advice. It's highly recommended that you seek advice from a professional for serious financial matters...(pssst: that was a PSA for the parents because your kid is at the lucky age of life where they're not likely going to get into any of those...specifically if they stick around here!).
