NPM Credit Union Wants to Help Your Kids See the Future!
How do you teach your children to save? By turning it into a habit. Studies show that habits formed when you are young tend to stick.
The theme for this year’s Youth Month is “The Science of Saving.” Using fun, sci-fi-inspired characters, it encourages youngsters to imagine a future where piggy banks fly and gigantic automatic-saving robots visit credit unions.
The science in the theme is not science fiction – research shows that when you picture yourself in the future achieving a goal, like buying a car or going to college, saving for it becomes easier.
Start small. Help them save for a toy they want. Then sign them up for a youth savings account where they save for far-off goals.
As your credit union, we want to help you teach your children to learn good financial habits. Together, we can help them blast-off toward a bright and wondrous future.
