Show your child how to be charitable by helping them commit acts of kindness for kids with their money. Choose charities where a small contribution – $12 or less – makes a tangible difference to engage your child. You’re trying to raise a giving, charitable child, right?

Saving for kids comes a lot easier (adults, too) if they use this one, weird trick I’m about to show you. There is power in naming something. Naming something gives it a purpose. A place to focus an intention. Savings accounts are no different when it comes to both needing a name and an actual […]
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!).
