Investing for Kids
My wife and I give them an allowance each week. They get $1 for each year of their age (the oldest gets $9.00 per week and the youngest gets $8.00 per week). We require them to pay tithe (10%) and put 25% in each of their long-term and short-term savings accounts. They get to spend what's left.
Once they accumulate enough in their long-term accounts, I pull it out and invest it for them. I'm hoping that by doing this, I will be teaching them how to use their money wisely. Time will tell I guess.
