Taking Kids To The Bank
Explain how the bank works, where your deposits actually go, what the bank does with their savings and that it is safe, secure and that they are earning money on their money!
Younger the better and continue to take them to the bank to physically deposit their savings. This reinforces a strong message about saving.
I understand that depositing at the ATM or via the iPhone is a lot more convenient but I don't think they get the same message that way.
I am not referring to your kids college savings plan or 529 plan, that is something that should be handled differently.
