Helping kids plan for the future (especially with money) can feel like getting them to sit still before getting their blood drawn at the doctor’s office. That short waiting time can feel like an eternity to them. Yet, kids won’t learn how to make financial plans for the future until you teach them how to wait, plan, and save.
