Tips for Parenting

What's the key to teaching your teen smart money management skills? It's talking to them about money and giving them increasing responsibility for managing their own spending in a teen checking account.

  1. Teach your teen how to use a checking account, including how to use a debit card, write checks, effectively manage their money and avoid paying checking fees.
     
  2. Talk with your teen about why saving a portion of their income from summer jobs makes sense for their future. Have them deposit their paycheck using the Jolt Mobile Banking App, then transfer part of that paycheck into their savings account.
     
  3. Teach your teen security smarts and talk through how scammers trick people into sharing personal information.
