“Financial experts agree that the younger we teach kids about saving the better, with some reports saying children’s financial habits for life are formed as young as 7. There are a lot of reasons we don’t save enough and it is a complex area of study but one of the simple reasons is that we don’t make it a habit. We believe that making the process of earning and saving fun and tangible encourages children (and us as parents) to keep savings top of mind and form a regular savings habit early in a child’s life.”
