People always ask me, “Hey Daddy-O, why you so cool when it comes to money?” My answer? “My parents, baby, my parents!”
My family wasn’t rich growing up, but my mom was a smart gal. She taught me the value money and how to save at an early age. I even had my own savings account when I was seven years old (OK, so I only had 10 bucks in it, but that was a whole lotta lettuce in my mind).
But I digress.
The point is this: open an account for yo kids! It’ll make a huge difference in how they value money. If they already have an account, sit down with them and create a savings plan. Make it simple and fun so they don’t lose interest. For a little help, check out the credit union’s kid’s club for free educational activities. Who knows, you might even learn a thing or two in the process. And with that, I’m outta here. Stay cool.
