Teens & Money: Checking & Savings Accounts

In this day and age, parents have left most of the child education responsibilities to schools and teachers. However, one subject remains untouched. Financial know-how is not taught in schools, thus when kids grow newtup and go to college they end up living in debt. Parents may have taught their kids how to spend wisely when shopping or even how to save cash on a piggy bank when they were small kids. Now that the kids are all grown and are now teenagers, the information should be upgraded to new ways of making money and managing it. This is where the idea of teaching your teenage kids about checking and savings accounts comes in.

Parents should first of all sit down with their kids and give them detailed information about a savings account. They should be made to understand that a savings account is one that does not have a debit card or check attached to it. As a result spending money from a savings account is rather difficult. Teens should be taught that when it comes to looking for the most ideal savings account, interest rates are the determining factor. This means that as the money is saved on the account, it tends to accumulate interest based on the percentage agreed upon on opening the account. This policy works in such a way that the more money that is saved, the greater the level of interest accumulated at the end of the day. full article
