understand that this is a value that you're spending money on already. so this is a good idea you look at what you're spending on small discretionary items, things that your child likes but doesn't necessarily need like a toy. now, here's the critical issue. you have to make it clear that the amount that you're giving as an allowance replaces what you have been spending on your child. no double dipping. and you should encourage your children to save 10% of that allowance by opening a savings account at a nearby bank or credit union and that way you can explain the concept of earning interest. if you want to reinforce the savings habit you might consider a matching plan for your child's savings. maybe you put in 25 cents for every dollar she saves. >> wow. getting them ready for the 401(k) later in life. what about high schoolers? what should you tell them? >> i think as early as high school we start having these big conversations about debt and you know a lot of these kids are attuned to this already because they have lived
it over the last five years. but you want to explain why it's so important to avoid using credit cards to buy things you can't afford to pay for with cash. now, for kids who are working, explain the difference between gross and net pay so they don't have a heart attack and wonder who that evil fica is who is stealing all their money and encourage them to open roth i ira accounts to begin saving for retirement. for more on teaching your children to save the american bankers association has a special kids and money section. you can go to aba.com. >> jill, when my kids get their bank statements, they both have savings accounts, they love looking at the amount. and they want to always add to it. so i think that kind of helps them, too. >> absolutely. >> i went to cal my freshman year i had to commute into cal. my dad gave me a credit card for gas. he said if you're good with it you can keep it. after a month he took it back. i learned a lesson.
