Increase your child’s financial education by teaching them about savings and budgeting. For young children, one way to encourage saving would be to give them their allowance in small bills. If they earn $5 per week, encourage them to save $1. Or, use the things that they want, such as new clothes or toys, as an incentive. Let them participate in saving up for it and use an earnings chart to track their progress, making it more fun and engaging. Bringing your kids into the bank and helping them open their own savings accounts is another great way to keep them engaged. Wells Fargo offers a savings club program designed to reward children ages 5 through 12.
