Get your children started early.
Parents are the number one influence on their children’s financial behaviors, so it’s up to us to raise a generation of mindful consumers, investors, savers and givers. Education is one of the most important factors, when instilling lessons in finances to our children.
The MyCreditUnion.gov has developed Pocket Cents as a great tool for the credit union community. Feel free to look over the site and enjoy the resources available to you.
By opening a Highway Crossroads share account early, you invest in your child’s future and they start learning financial fundamentals from the very beginning. Saving is a key principle. People who make a habit of saving regularly, even saving small amounts, are well on their way to success. Teach them the power of pennies.
By joining Kids Klub, kids will become excited about watching their savings grow. They learn money saving tips, along with how to keep track of deposits. Teach them to be their own boss and pay themselves first by putting aside a portion of their birthday money, Christmas money, allowance, etc. Let them use those developing math skills to keep track of their savings and get rewarded for those good grades.
